Disaster Declared For Area South Of Kenai

By | October 29, 2013 - 5:08 pm

A handful of residents on the Kenai Peninsula have been battling surface and groundwater flooding for more than a month.

On Tuesday, Borough Mayor Mike Navarre issued a disaster declaration for the area just south of Kenai, a quarter mile inland from Cook Inlet.

The impacted area is roughly 6,000 acres of mostly swamp and wetlands. Governor Sean Parnell took a brief tour of the damage Monday while he was in Kenai for unrelated business.
