Despite Dropping Water Levels, Crooked Creek Remains Flooded

Angela Denning-Barnes, KYUK – Bethel

Flood waters have dropped about 10 feet in Crooked Creek on the middle Kuskokwim River, but the village is still flooded. Emergency response workers traveled there Thursday, including a team from Red Cross, the State’s Department of Environmental Conservation, and the Emergency Coordination Center. Responders are working with residents to get them through immediate dangers.
