Public Safety Minister Bruce Northrup says the new system will enable alerts to be rapidly shared with other River Watch officials.
Northrup says the data can be shared with other provincial agencies to help with briefings, risk assessments and planning.
The province's annual flood watch starts Monday.
The River Watch program is a joint effort between the province's Environment Department and its Emergency Measures Organization.
Northrup says residents should report ice jam or rising water and have a plan to evacuate and be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours.Suggest a correction
