Heavy rain, landslides hit Prince of Wales Island
ANCHORAGE – Heavy rainfall combined with melting snow is creating dangerous conditions on Prince of Wales Island.
Alaska State Troopers said landslides currently block Harris River and Coffman Cove roads. Whale Pass Road is also washed out, they said, and the weather has downed a number of power lines. Troopers on Tuesday said island residents should stay inside if possible, and use extreme caution while driving.
