FAIRBANKS—High water continues on the Chena River, causing continued minor flooding upstream of Fairbanks and the cancellation or postponement of two weekend boat events.

According to the National Weather Service, between 1 and 3 inches of rain fell over the region earlier this week, raising the Chena River to minor flood stage in Two Rivers and North Pole. The Army Corps of Engineers closed flood gates at the Moose Creek Dam at 6 p.m. Wednesday, with a goal of limiting the Chena River flow to less than 12,000 cubic feet per second in downtown Fairbanks.

The flow was 8,550 cubic feet per second as of 11:15 a.m. today in downtown and was forecast to peak at 4 a.m. Friday. at 9,010 cubic feet per second, according to the Weather Service model.

As of Wednesday evening, the Chena River had begun dropping upstream of the Granite Tors campground, and a crest of water was moving toward the Moose Creek Dam. It is expected to reach the dam sometime today.

Minor flooding is expected to continue in low-lying areas in the Steamboat Landing neighborhood and may affect Freeman Road, off of Nordale Road. Drivers are cautioned not to drive their vehicles through flooded areas.

Heavy rain fell overnight and into this morning, and more is forecast through Friday.

When I flew back to Fairbanks on Monday I saw the river was pretty high when we passed over it. I'm glad we have that dam, otherwise we'd get flooded out! And shouldn't have to be cautioned not to drive through flooded areas..DUH. lol

Today walking home from work I saw a guy holding his phone..he saw I was holding mine too and was like "Team Mystic!" LOL. We were at a Pokestop, so he assumed I was playing too (which I was..sorry not sorry :P). I did happen to choose Team Mystic, though I haven't battled anyone or whatever you do at those gyms lol (I'm nervous about trying it and messing something up lol). I only caught a Zubat thing this time..he was in my way!! Haha, I love this game :P

I hate the news these days..all these shootings and today I read about teenagers that burned puppies alive and posted it to Snapchat and another about an abandoned cat with her kittens tied to her..they rescued the kittens, but they all died. WHY?? How can people be so awful?? I wish the world would get better :(

Paulette, mom, etc..adults who are good at adulting LOL

Wow that's nuts about the river being so high! I agree that you shouldn't have to caution people about driving through flooded areas, but people are so dumb sometimes haha!

And yes, speaking of people being sick - WTF is up with all that :( That's AWFUL, I don't understand how any human being is capable of doing the most atrocious things to such innocent animals. :(
