Seward, Mat-Su Floods Slowly Receding

By | September 24, 2012

In Seward, the city emergency operations center is closing its doors Monday, although the center will reopen Tuesday morning.  Brenda Ballou, deputy city clerk for the city of Seward, says some residents are relying on local water taxis to get around.  Ballou says the city drinking water system remains intact.

Talkeetna residents plan to hold a community meeting Tuesday evening to determine what happens next after flooding swept the town last Friday.  The Matanuska Susitna Borough Assembly meets tonight in emergency session to extend the disaster declaration that was issued on Sept. 20.

In the Mat- Su, all rivers are below flood stage except for the Skwentna, which is cresting, and officials are forecasting another two days before the Skwentna recedes.
