Ice Moving In Napaimute (Updated 10:00 PM)

Mark Leary reported at 7:00 pm this evening that the entire river is passing ice…so that should get things moving in Chuathbaluk and Aniak in the near future.  At least one would think…wouldn’t they?

Hold on – just as I posted the above he texted me back and said that it stopped!

If the Kuskowkim breaks up tomorrow…or later, then it should be a new record according to NOAA’s records.

Here’s what the river looked like in Napaimute after the ice stopped moving.

Mark says the water is low.
