The water has risen one foot in the last hour and a lot of ice is now passing Napaimute at 11:30 AM.
All is calm with minimal ice flowing past Napaimute. The water level has not changed since this morning; it had dropped at least a foot overnight.
After days of now ice going by, something upriver let loose. As of 8:30 this evening small intermittent chunks began passing, then they got more common and larger. Now some 300 feet long are passing.
The water level has dropped a few inches…for now.
I talked to Eric Morgan in Chuathbaluk and he said their ice is now moving. Word is that the ice in Aniak is also moving down the slough and piling up on the dike.
