GOFFSTOWN, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire authorities are watching at least six locations across the state for concerns about ice jams.

WMUR-TV reports one of them is on the Piscataquog River. The ice jams stretches for about 3,000 feet and is almost on the town line between New Boston and Goffstown. Officials have been monitoring it since February.

The U.S. Geological Survey set up a monitoring station in Goffstown to watch the river.

State officials said they’re concerned about how much water is inside the snow. Officials with the Department of Environmental Services said that in general, there are about three to four inches of water in the snowpack, and how that snow melts determines everything.
