Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Advisory
Issued: 1:57 PM AKDT Jul. 27, 2016 – National Weather Service

... The Flood Advisory remains in effect until 245 PM akdt Friday for
the chena river upstream of nordale Road...

The chena river east of nordale Road remains near bankfull with
minor flooding in some locations. River levels continue to fall from
Two Rivers east and will continue falling slowly over the next
several days. From the Moose Creek dam downstream the chena river
will remain high through Friday as water slowly drains out from
behind the dam.

In the Steamboat Landing subdivision in North Pole... water levels
are expected to remain at minor flood stage through Friday.
Several inches of water will continue to cross Freeman Road. River
water will inundate some yards in the subdivision... and groundwater
flooding will occur in some basements.

The U.S. Army corps of engineers Alaska district is currently
operating the Moose Creek dam. Flood control gates at the dam
started regulating the chena river at 6:00 PM on 20 July 2016.
The dam will be regulating the chena river so that flow does not
exceed 12000 cubic feet per second in downtown Fairbanks.
Groundwater will rise to near the ground surface for several
thousand feet west of the Moose Creek dam with minor flooding
possible. River navigation through the Moose Creek dam is
unavailable during operations.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.
