In April 2018, New Brunswick's famous Reversing Falls simply stopped reversing as the 2018 Saint John river flood caused the worst flooding on the river in more than 50 years.

At its height, more than 300,000 cubic feet per second of water raced through the Mactaquac dam just above Fredericton, 3.5 times more water than normal. When the waters finally receded two weeks later, cottages had been floated away, homes and cars were underwater, and thousands of people had been displaced, their homes destroyed.

In New Brunswick Underwater, Lisa Hrabluk uses words and images to follow volunteers, evacuees and first responders who raced the rising river to save their communities from this historic flood.

Editorial Reviews

"When the Saint John River rose in 2018, it reminded us, powerfully, of its place in New Brunswick's history. Lisa Hrabluk introduces us to the people whose attention it seized and who've been forced to reflect on how they can live in harmony with this extraordinary river in the future." — Costas Halavrezos, journalist and former CBC host of Radio Noon
