Break-up and Ice-jam Flooding on Kuskokwim R at Sleetmute

20 June 2022

This is our last and most dramatic break-up video of 2022 and can be viewed here. Flooding caused by ice jamming did cause hardships for this and other communities along the river this year. We hope this real-time camera, along with many community observers, were helpful in providing forecasts and flood hazard warnings to residents. Many thanks to Susan Hubbard for locating the camera on her property and students and teachers at Jack Egnaty Sr. School for helping collect important ice data.
