“This video demonstrates how quickly a flood can occur when an ice jam finally releases. Taken by Lewis and Susan Case, this video is of Felchner Brook, a small stream in central Vermont. Imagine what it would be like for this occur on a much larger waterway, such as the Aroostook, Saint John, or Penobscot River. The wave would be many times bigger, filled with trees, rocks, and large ice chunks. The Cases were lucky because Felchner Brook is small, but anyone caught unawares by a sudden large ice jam release would have little to no chance of survival.” – US National Weather Service Caribou ME
