Affected Areas

No reports were available from 1854 describing this flood or the damages caused. However, newspaper reports on the 1887 flood indicate that damages during 1854 were significant. Levels in 1854 were probably the highest experienced between 1831 and 1887 at Fredericton, and the highest between 1817 and 1887 at Indiantown. Levels in 1854 were about one foot [0.3m] lower than those during 1887 at Indiantown and about 18 inches [0.4m] lower than the 1887 levels at Sheffield.
