Government of New Brunswick

This system contains records of flood events in New Brunswick from 1696 to the present. The database has been compiled from multiple sources and is currently maintained by the Department of Environment and Local Government. Each record contains descriptive information on each flood, plus information on causes, magnitude, the areas affected, and (if applicable) the nature and cost of damages. The database is fully searchable and some records include photos and other supporting information.


The flood history database is provided for information purposes only. It has been retrieved from a range of third party sources (e.g. archives and newspapers). No representations or warranties, either expressed or implied, are made as to the accuracy of the information presented. The user therefore assumes the entire risk as to the use of the information contained within.

The cost estimates that are cited for flood event damages are estimated costs as reported by various sources including the media at the time of the events. The amounts have not been adjusted to reflect inflation.
