New Brunswick is promising financial help for people whose homes and businesses were flooded after days of rain caused rivers to overflow.
Premier David Alward had an aerial tour of some of the damage caused around St. Stephen, a town of about five-thousand that borders Maine.
Meanwhile, a state of emergency has been declared in Quebec's Gaspe region after torrential rain and flooding forced many residents from their homes.
The mayor of Gaspe city in Quebec has said more than 300 homes have been flooded in recent days, prompting the evacuation of about 200 people.
A spokesman for the town of Gaspe, Quebec says 300 to 400 homes have been flooded and 125 of those have been evacuated.
Brad McDonald also says a number of isolated homes that had been cut off by flooded roads have now been reached and evacuated.
McDonald said no deaths or major injuries had been reported but that people are "emotionally shaken up."
A break in the clouds had waters receding this morning, causing some residents to return to their homes. But more rain has been forecast for later in the day.
While much of the flooding is centerd around the town of Gaspe, damage extends to the village of Riviere-au-Renard, Que., and the New Richmond region.
Some roads near swollen waterways have crumbled, but officials from the Ministry of Transport have been surveying the damage and have made all major roadways accessible, some through alternative routes.
The Red Cross is at hand and has set up two emergency shelters, one at a school in Gaspe and another at a school in Riviere-au-Renard, Que.
Mayor of St. George, N.B., says evacuees must complete a safety check on their home before returning.
The Department of Transportation in New Brunswick says that Route 1 is now open in the Manor Road area near St George, but is reduced to one lane. Commercial traffic travelling westbound to the United States is advised to take an alternate route to the border crossing at Houlton, ME., when possible, to avoid delays.
Drivers are reminded to use caution in this area as there is still some water on the road.
"While I had the chance to witness the effects of nature's awesome force yesterday, I was most impressed by the resilience and strength shown by New Brunswickers in these difficult moments," said New Brunswick Premier David Alward.
Quebec's minister of public security, Robert Dutil, and the region's two provincial MNAs will be announcing details on the compensation after surveying the damage from the heavy rains later today.
