Matanuska River Threatening Waterfront Properties

By | June 22, 2012 - 4:57 pm

The Matanuska River is swollen and threatening riverfront properties.

The river is surging with snowmelt brought on by 70-degree temperatures this week.

Borough spokeswoman Patty Sullivan says people who are using the river for recreational purposes should stay off it.

The river is expected to crest this weekend.
