HEAVY RAINFALL THAT OCCURRED ALONG THE NORTHERN AND WESTERN
SLOPES OF THE ALASKA RANGE LAST WEEK HAS PRODUCED A SURGE OF WATER
THAT IS PROGRESSING DOWN THE KUSKOKWIM RIVER. IT APPEARS THAT THE
RIVER CRESTED AT MCGRATH SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND NOW THE WAVE OF HIGH
WATER IS MOVING PAST LISKYS CROSSING...JUST UPSTREAM OF THE
VILLAGE OF STONY RIVER.

THIS SURGE OF WATER IS PROGRESSING DOWNSTREAM AND WILL RESULT IN
RISING WATER ON THE KUSKOKWIM RIVER UPSTREAM OF ANIAK EARLY THIS
WEEK. AT THIS TIME THE WATER IS NOT EXPECTED TO REACH FLOOD STAGE
AT ANY LOCATION. HOWEVER...THOSE WITH INTERESTS ALONG THE
KUSKOKWIM RIVER SHOULD PREPARE FOR A 1 TO 3 FOOT RISE IN WATER
LEVELS OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS AND MOVE PERSONAL BELONGINGS AWAY
FROM THE WATERS EDGE.

THIS STATEMENT WILL BE UPDATED AS CONDITIONS WARRANT.
