Southcentral Alaska has been battered by foul weather. Sunday, it was high winds and heavy snow on the Kenai Peninsula, causing power outages, many accidents and road closures. Monday, it's a heavy snow dump that hit in the early morning hours in Anchorage.
High winds in the Gulf of Alaska have forced ships into shelter. The cruise ship Statendam couldn't leave Seward Sunday, the Amsterdam and Westerdam cancelled their stops in Sitka, which is in sheltered waters, but still on the outer coast. Travelers expecting state ferries are advised to contact the Marine Highway for the latest information there.
