Rescue crews monitoring rivers in NH

Posted: Updated:

CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) - Rescue crews are keeping an eye on a river in Claremont, N.H., over flooding concerns, although the worst of the threat appears to be over.

Crews spent Thursday night examining the Sugar River.

A voluntary evacuation was issued for several homes Thursday after an ice jam formed, but no homes were damaged and the water had started to recede by nighttime.

Crews also are monitoring the Pemigewassett and Gale rivers, but there do not appear to any immediate threats.
