Lower Yukon Valley AK-
1218 PM AKDT Wed May 25 2022

...FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 AM AKDT THURSDAY...

* WHAT...Flooding of low lying areas

* WHERE...The Innoko River at Shageluk

* WHEN...Until 1000 AM AKDT Thursday.

* IMPACTS...Flooding continues in low-lying areas along the Innoko
  River at Shageluk. Residents report water over some roads near the
  river, including the road to the airport which is impassable.
  Water levels have started to gradually recede in Shageluk since
  cresting on Tuesday and are expected to fall during the remainder
  of the week.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...
  - At 1200 PM AKDT, An ice jam that was on the Yukon River last
    week caused a significant amount of water to flow overland
    and into the Innoko River. This surge of water is currently
    moving down the Innoko River and resulting in extensive
    overbank flow and flooding. This surge of water will
    gradually move downriver into the weekend with water levels
    falling as the crest passes.

Flood Advisory
National Weather Service Anchorage AK
100 PM AKDT Tue May 24 2022

AKZ141-262145-
/O.EXT.PAFC.FA.Y.0003.000000T0000Z-220526T2145Z/

Copper River Basin AK-
100 PM AKDT Tue May 24 2022

...FLOOD ADVISORY FOR SNOWMELT NOW IN EFFECT UNTIL 145 PM AKDT
THURSDAY FOR THE NORTHERN COPPER RIVER BASIN INCLUDING THE GULKANA
RIVER AND LAKE LOUISE ROAD...

* WHAT...Flooding caused by snowmelt continues.

* WHERE...Including the following area, the northern Copper River
  Basin along the Gulkana River and along Lake Louise Road.

* WHEN...Until 145 PM AKDT Thursday.

* IMPACTS...Minor flooding is occurring along portions of Lake
  Louise Road. The Gulkana River is also near or at bank-full.
  Expect near bank-full conditions on other area rivers and streams
  due to snowmelt.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...
  - At 100 PM AKDT, Alaska DOT officials report there is still
    water across Lake Louise Road at milepost 16.5 and is
    blocking the road. High water will continue erosion concerns
    for area streams and rivers including the Copper River.
  - Warm temperatures combined with continued snow melt along the
    Alaska Range and northern Copper River Basin is leading to
    significant snowmelt runoff. All of this water is moving down
    area rivers and streams in the northern Copper River Basin,
    including the Gulkana River and the Lake Louise drainage
    basin. This is leading to bank-full or in some cases water
    running out of the banks and producing minor flooding. Minor
    flooding also continues along Lake Louise Road due to
    persistent snowmelt in the area. Water has over-topped the
    road and has blocked access to the lodge and the airstrip.
