Rainfall prompts Interior flood advisories

FAIRBANKS –

Interior Alaska has been getting some much-needed rain the past couple of days and the rain continues to fall this morning. So much rain has fallen that flooding is becoming a concern along many streams and rivers to the east and southeast of Fairbanks.

Rain will begin to taper off later today, but another round of some wet weather could return by Saturday. The flood advisories currently in effect mean that rivers and streams are elevated in the highlighted areas. If you live in any of these areas be prepared to move to higher ground as water levels may continue to rise.
