The Alaska-Pacific River Forecast Center is calling for the Talkeetna River to rise as high as minor flood stage, cresting Thursday evening. A storm system in the Alaska Range is expected to cause up to two-and-a-half inches of rain in the mountains. Earlier predictions called for the river to reach major flood stage, but hydrologists have backed off of that forecast, for now. The River Forecast Center says that there could be high water and debris as a result of the rising river.
KTNA will provide more information as it becomes available.
