...Moderate to heavy rainfall is causing streams and creeks to
rise in Anchorage...

Continued moderate to heavy rainfall through the evening hours
over Anchorage has caused water levels on area streams and creeks
to rise. Additional rainfall is expected over the next several
hours, especially over west Anchorage, which will allow water
levels to continue to rise. Some minor flooding, especially near
Chester Creek, is likely until rainfall begins to taper off after
midnight. Impacts from flooding will be relatively minor with
ponding of water in roadways and portions of the Chester Creek
bike path becoming inundated.
