Thanks and best wishes to all. Just because you're not Louisiana doesn't mean you're not AMERICA! Our prayers are with all of you for a speedy and healthy recovery. I'm sure it's hard to imagine now, but 'climate change' might actually bring a lot of GOOD things to Alaska. Stay strong!

The fast and early freeze up of rural Alaska's transportation routes (rivers), can and has been proven to be a diaster, as well.

I by no means wish to diminish the damage and loss created by the spring flooding on the Yukon River. No way.

The Yukon River, is a natural transportation route (as opposed to a asphalt highway, which maintence is an object of operation), where the creation of a natural diaster can occur in the spring and fall.

I just see the quick, unexpected early freeze up of the almighty Yukon River, creating a diaster last fall.

I wish those caught up in the unexpected expansive mood swings of the Yukon, be safe, healthy and able to recover. God bless to all whom live on its banks.

Well the Anchorage Daily News apparently isn't aware that Stevens Village is floating away and it looks like Tanana is next!

Please KTVA, keep us posted! Especially with what we can do to help!!!

Anchorage, please pray for the villages and people of the mighty Yukon River. So far, there are no reports of anyone being lost. GOD be willing, it will stay that way.

If you can, please help.

Out of Staters, I refer you to www.newsminer.com to read up on this situation.

To Truthreporter.....you'd have to be there. First off: In most areas.......there is no 'higher' ground for many many miles with NO ROADS.....hello Alaska.....the USA 'pristine wilderness park'. There are reports that the onslaught of the river happens in minutes... I am sure many HAVE moved some of their things to higher ground, if it's available. That's not going to stop the river of ice shards from ripping up all you can't carry with you... the big ticket items, like one's house, or boat or generator etc. etc.
