Areal Flood Advisory
Statement as of 6:37 AM AKDT on September 03, 2015

The National Weather Service in Anchorage has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
the Kenai River from Kenai Lake to Skilak Lake

* until 645 PM akdt Friday

* the snow Glacier-dammed lake in the Kenai Mountains has released
and is sending additional water into Kenai Lake and the Kenai
River. Water levels on the Kenai River at Cooper Landing are
approaching 12.5 ft this morning and continuing to rise. Minor
flood stage is at 13.0 ft and is expected to be reached around
midday Thursday. A crest around 13.5 ft is now expected by 10 am
akdt Friday.

* Impacts: water levels along the Kenai River upstream of Skilak
Lake are expected to be at or above bank full with low-lying areas
likely flooded.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated... or
ponding of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
Do not attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.
It takes only a few inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles
away.

148 PM akdt Wed Sep 2 2015

The National Weather Service in Anchorage has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
low-lying areas around Kenai Lake including the Primrose
campground.

* Until 145 PM akdt Friday

* at 148 PM akdt Wednesday... water levels on the snow river and
Kenai Lake continue to rise. Minor flooding has likely begun along
Primrose Road and portions of the Primrose campground on the south
side of Kenai Lake as well as other low-lying areas surrounding
the lake. Water levels will continue to slowly climb for the next
day or two before beginning to fall.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Special Statement
Statement as of 11:36 AM AKDT on September 02, 2015

... Glacial Lake outburst from snow Glacier dammed lake flowing
into Kenai Lake and the Kenai River...

The snow Glacier dammed lake is releasing. Water levels on the
snow river are beginning to level off but gradually rising water
levels can be expected for another day or two. Water levels on
Kenai Lake and the Kenai River also are rising and are expected to
continue rising gradually for several days. No flooding is
expected at this time.

The snow river near Seward is currently at a stage of 13.4 ft.
Minor flood stage is at 16.0 ft. A crest on the snow river is
expected just under 14.0 ft later this week.

The Kenai River at Cooper Landing is currently at a stage of 11.3
ft. Minor flood stage is at 13.0 ft. The Kenai River at Cooper
Landing is not expected to reach minor flood stage.

Impacts: at current stage of 11.3 ft class iii Whitewater has
developed on the Kenai River below jims Landing. Based on the
current forecast... water may begin to impact portions of the
Primrose Road south of Kenai Lake beginning Friday morning.

A Glacier dammed lake release is a naturally occurring process. In
the headwaters of the snow river the snow Glacier impounds a lake.
Over time precipitation and melting glacial ice cause the lake
level to rise. When the lake is sufficiently filled it causes a
small part of the Glacier to lift... thus draining the lake. The
snow Glacier dammed lake typically drains every other fall.

Forecast estimates of peak stage and timing will be updated on the
Alaska-Pacific river forecast center website at
http://aprfc.Arh.NOAA.Gov
