On Sunday evening, the issue of Alaska coastal erosion will be featured on the Al Jazeera America program “Fault Lines.” The correspondent for the story is former APRN reporter Libby Casey. She says they highlighted Newtok and Kivilina on the northwest Arctic coast.
Newtok is farther along in the very slow process of relocation, but Kivilina is having trouble getting disaster funds in part because of their strong efforts at protecting the community from storm damage.
Libby Casey is a reporter for Al Jezzera America. The Fault Lines program “When the Water Took the Land” will air Sunday evening at 9 p.m. EST.
