Emmonak update - Ice Broke

Emmonak: the river ice broke yesterday afternoon and they are now having moderate to major flooding. I spoke to my friend in Emmonak and she said that water was all the way up to her house which is behind the school. The Emmonak stores are closed. She wasn’t sure if anyone had to evacuate from the low lying houses.

If water is behind the school, the water is probably in my old apartment. The houses that are behind the school are higher than where I used to live. Both stores are elevated so unless ice chunks cause problems, they might be ok. The sewage lagoon is behind the school, I hope water did not get into it.
