We have had some heavy rain and wind the last couple of days, but today it really picked up. The City of Seward has declared a state of emergency, and many of the roads are closed including the Seward Highway in multiple places. The water was really deep crossing the Seward Highway at Mile 4. I didn’t go close enough for a photo of the Seward Highway, but did take a couple of photos of other areas. I will take a few more in an hour or so at high tide.
The above photo is looking into Forest Acres, the below photo is of Nash Road. Both of these roads are fairly elevated disguising the depth of the surrounding water.
Update: I took a few more photos at high tide. I should mention, our house is on high ground and not in any danger. Unfortunately, it sounds like a few friends aren’t so fortunate.
This is what’s left of Lowell Point Road. This area looked fine an hour ago, now the waterfall seems to be overflowing it’s banks with water flowing into the hatchery and the Marine Center.
Flooding at Railway Ave. and the Seward Marine Center.
At high tide, waves on Resurrection Bay were breaking over the bike trail and into the campground.
