Areal Flood Warning
Statement as of 2:41 PM AKDT on May 21, 2015

... A Flood Warning remains in effect until 415 PM akdt Friday for
the Dalton Highway from milepost 394 to deadhorse...

The northern portion of the Dalton Highway continues to experience
flooding due to snowmelt and aufeis in the Main Channel. As of this
morning a portion of the flow from The Sag river continues to over
top the Dalton Highway near milepost 394 and flows northward along
the west side of the Highway to near the DeadHorse Airport.

Several construction pads south of the DeadHorse Airport are flooded
on the west side of the Highway. Water is returning to The Sag river
just south of the DeadHorse Airport through a series of breaches in
the Dalton Highway. Since Wednesday water levels in the vicinity of
the DeadHorse Airport have dropped but flooding nearby
continues.

Above normal temperatures will persist through the week and
excessive runoff will continue. Flooding is expected to persist
for several days until snowmelt ends and the river ice within the
main sag river channel clears out.

For the latest Road conditions please check the Alaska Department
of Transportation website: dot.Alaska.Gov/nreg/Dalton-updates.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been
reported. Stream rises will be slow and flash flooding is not
expected. However... all interested parties should take necessary
precautions immediately.

Areal Flood Advisory, Areal Flood Watch
Statement as of 4:01 PM AKDT on May 21, 2015

... The Flood Advisory remains in effect until 345 PM akdt Saturday
for the kuparuk river...

At 401 PM akdt... snowmelt and overflow of inplace channel ice is
causing water levels slowly climb. Water levels over the past two
days have risen high enough to inundate three low water crossings
along spine Road.

Additional snowmelt over the next couple of days will cause water
levels to rise and create more extensive flooding on the coastal
plain.

Expected impacts: low water sections and portions of low lying areas
will be inundated with water. Spine Road will likely be closed to
construction and maintenance crews.

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.

346 PM akdt Thu may 21 2015

... Flood Watch remains in effect through Saturday afternoon for
all rivers draining out of the coastal plain...

The Flood Watch continues for

* al rivers draining out of the coastal plain

* through Saturday afternoon

the northern Dalton Highway near The Sag river. A Flood Advisory
is in effect for the lower Colville river and the lower kuparuk
river.

* Very warm temperatures over the Brooks range and the eastern
Arctic plain is causing rapid snow melt. Further snow melt
will result in Colville... sag and kuparuk river levels
remaining high and likely rising Further. Water levels are
expected to remain high for several days.

* Flooding is possible near the Colville... sag and kuparuk
rivers as water may inundate low lying areas as more river ice
moves downstream.

issuance of flood warnings and advisories. Those living in areas

... The Flood Advisory for melting snow and overflow of inplace
channel ice remains in effect until 230 PM
akdt Saturday for the Colville river...

At 305 PM akdt... gauges and public reports indicate snowmelt and
overflow of inplace channel ice is causing water levels to slowly
climb. Water levels have risen to minor flood stage and the low
part of the runway and Low Island areas are taking on water.

Additional snowmelt over the next couple of days will cause water
levels to rise and create more extensive flooding on the coastal
plain.

* Expected impacts: low sections of Delta Islands are expected to
flood. Portions of the air strip at Colville Village could be
impacted if an ice jam located between the head of the Delta and
Ocean Point were to release.

* Flooding will remain over sparsely populated areas of central
central Beaufort Sea coast.
