Ice jam causes Anchor River flooding

Jan 3, 2019

Warmer temperatures and precipitation on the southern Kenai Peninsula have pushed the Anchor River above bankfull.

A small ice jam is causing minor flooding on the river near Anchor Point, though it may improve once temperatures drop and precipitation ceases.

Low lying areas such as the campground may be affected by conditions about a foot above bankfull.

Lows near the Anchor River are forecast to be in the teens overnight.
