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.
