Kodiak Under Blizzard Warning
Monday, 23 March 2009

            A winter storm watch issued Sunday warned of a large, slow-moving low south of Kodiak Island that could bring up to 20-inches of snow over the next few days. That watch was replaced Monday afternoon with a full-on blizzard warning.

            City Public Works Director Mark Kozak said the first blast of snow Sunday night and early Monday was less than his crews expected, but was already picking up by mid-day.

            Less than two weeks ago almost all the snow in town had melted, and some motorcyclists were even seen out and about. Overall though, according to Kozak, it hasn't been too snowy of a winter, saving the city some money.

            Kozak is also keeping his eye on the ash fall predictions from Mount Redoubt, which could force him to take his plows, snow-blowers and dump trucks off the road to protect their engines from the damaging ash-fall.

            Even without the blizzard, Era Aviation announced that the Redoubt eruption has forced them to cancel some of their flights, and most of Alaska's flights in-state have also been canceled.

            The blizzard warning went into effect at 4 this (Monday) afternoon, and calls for snow and blowing snow, with winds gusting to 50 miles per hour, reducing visibility to a quarter-mile or less at times. As the large storm system moves eastward, the snow and winds should diminish overnight. The blizzard warning is in effect until 5 a.m. Tuesday.

            Mount Redoubt is erupting near Anchorage.  The volcano exploded several times late last night and this morning, sending ash columns as high as 60-thousand-feet in the air. Winds are pushing the ash west of the most populated areas of the state. But a thin layer of heavy residue has fallen on the isolated village of Skwentna. Dozens of flights in and out of Anchorage have been canceled.

            Reaction statewide was swift to Governor Sarah Palin's announcement late last week that she would refuse major amounts of federal economic stimulus money. First she said about half of the nearly 1-billion dollars would be left on the table, but in a subsequent announcement, she said she would be accepting about two-thirds. KMXT's Jay Barrett has reaction from some of Kodiak's elected officials.

            The Kodiak High School Lady Bears wrapped up their first visit to the state basketball championship tournament in a generation with a loss this morning to the Dimond Lynx, 51-to-44. Kodiak played the taller Anchorage school tough early. The Bears tied it at 13 early in the second period, just before the Lynx went on a 10 point run to take a commanding lead, that reached as many as 17 points. Dimond remained in control until the 4th, when Kodiak cut the lead to as few as 7 just before the final buzzer.

Borough Assembly Wants Two Tugs for PWS Tankers

            With the 20th anniversary of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill just days away, there is the possibility that the giant super tankers that ply the waters of Prince William Sound will be able to do so unescorted by powerful tugboats to keep them out of trouble.

            The law that requires two escort tugs for each tanker will expire once each boat in the tanker fleet has double hulls, which the Exxon Valdez did not. There is a movement among communities and groups in Alaska - especially those areas oiled by the 11-million-gallon spill, like Kodiak - to keep the tug escort requirement.

            The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly last night passed a resolution to that effect.

            Meanwhile, there are a number of Exxon Valdez commemorative events in Kodiak, starting this evening at Kodiak Island College. At 5 p.m., a collection of photographs from Kodiak Island residents of the spill's devastation on the island will be on display, with a reception catered by Mill Bay Coffee. That will be followed by two presentations about the human and environmental effects of the spill, and a short film.

            At 11 a.m. on Saturday at the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center, Sharon Bushell and Stan Jones will be signing their new book, "The Spill: Personal Stories from the Exxon Valdez Disaster." At 7 p.m., Tim Richardson will give a talk on habitat restoration in the Kodiak Archipelago. The photography exhibit will be open all afternoon back at the college.
