           The Alaska Department of Fish and Game has announced another delay in the fishery opening for the Tanner crab fisheries in the Northeast and Eastside sections of the Kodiak District. The National Weather Service marine weather 48-hour forecast issued at 4 a.m. this (Friday) morning included storm and gale warnings. Therefore, tank inspections and the Tanner crab fishery opening will be delayed for at least another 24 hours.

            If the marine weather forecast issued at 4 a.m. Saturday, also contains gale warnings, tank inspections and the fishery opening will be delayed again for another 24 hours.

            If Saturday morning's forecast does not include gale warnings, tank inspections will begin at noon Saturday, and the fishery will open at noon on Sunday. Once the fishery opens, Fish and Game advises participants that the master of each vessel is responsible for the ultimate safety of the vessel.

            Gale warnings mean that winds are at 35 knots or higher. Any action to further delay or to open the fishery will be announced by Fish and Game by 9 a.m. on Saturday. For further details, contact the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in Kodiak.

            Heavy rain, snow-melt and frozen ground contributed to some minor flooding around town. Kodiak City Engineer Howard Weston said city crews were kept very busy, starting Wednesday night and into today (Thursday).

            He said with the ground frozen from the recent deep freeze, the rain was not able to soak in, and instead, all of it became runoff. He said usually a third or more of the rainfall is absorbed into the ground.

            There was a small landslide above the road into Gibson Cove, and yards of homes on the north side of Selief Lane got flooded after the culverts under their driveways couldn't handle the volume. Weston said it's a long standing problem, since the homes were built at a level lower than the creek that used to run through there, which is now mostly a drainage ditch between driveways. He said about seven or eight years ago the small, one-foot culverts were replaced by the city with four-foot culverts, and it has greatly reduced the frequency of the flooding there.

           A city fire department pumper truck was called in and the Coast Guard loaned the city a large dewatering pump to alleviate the build up of water in the ditches. By 11 a.m., all the yards were dry, though the culverts were operating at maximum capacity.
