February 15, 2003: Ice jam in Badger, Newfoundland

Staff writers
February 15, 2013 — Badger, Newfoundland has a history of flooding, but the worst in the town's history began on February 15, 2003.

A massive ice blockage caused three rivers to burst their banks, sending water through the streets.

Following the flood, a combination of high winds, blowing snow and freezing temperatures entombed the town in ice.

A state of emergency was declared and the entire town was evacuated.

Miraculously, there were no injuries.
