          The National Weather Service in Anchorage has issued a high wind warning to remain in effect until 5 p.m. today. The Kodiak Harbormaster's office is reporting that due to high winds, several vessels' lines have started to part, and at least three boats' lines have broken free. Harbormaster Marty Owen described the situation the weather is causing at the Harbor.

            Owen urges all boat owners to check and secure their vessels as soon as possible. He said there is currently no power in Saint Herman Harbor.

 

            Kodiak Electric Association is also reporting that several trees have fallen into power lines, resulting in power outages to several areas of town. 

 

The high wind warning for Kodiak Island remains in effect until 5 p.m. today. A strong low in the Gulf of Alaska and strong high pressure building in the Bering Sea are combining to create strong northwest winds over Kodiak Island. Northwest winds of 50 to 70 MPH with gusts of up to 90 MPH are being reported.
