Western Alaska Gets Pounded

The last time we had a storm this size in the Bering Sea was November 1974. Nome saw a 13 foot sea surge then, and expect to see at least a 9 foot surge peaking around midnight tonight. With no sea ice fastened to shore, Nome and the many villages along the coast remain vulnerable to the possible surge.

For the most part, damage has been reported as lost roofs, broken windows, flooding & power outages.
