    Default Holy Moly the Chena is high

    I don't think I could drive the XS under the University Ave bridge. Brings back memories of 1967, certainly hope the dam works.

    I've heard they have the flood control gates 1/2 closed...not sure how to confirm that, but the water has still come up since this morning, so that 1/2 inch you had may not be there any longer!!

    According to the Corps website they show no diversion into the Tanana at this time (gates open)????
    I dont know how often they update, you would think often during an event................
