Emmonak, Alakanuk flood

 


Last week the ice came down the Yukon River, met with the Bering Sea ice and the backed up water flooded the communities of Emmonak and Alakanuk. The flooding began June 4 and Emmonak was cut off from the airport because the road washed out, according to alaskadispatch.com. With Alakanuk under water, six residents were evacuated.
