Flood warning issued for Cooper Landing

Posted: September 22, 2011 - 7:00am  |  Updated: September 22, 2011 - 8:10am

The National Weather Service in Anchorage has issued a flood advisory for the upper Kenai River at Cooper Landing until 10 a.m. Sunday.

According to the advisory, heavy rainfall in the upper Kenai River basin has caused water to rise rapidly above Kenai Lake and the precipitation is already causing significant rises at Cooper Landing as it routes through the lake.

The river is expected to rise above its minor flood stage of 13 feet by 10 a.m. tomorrow and is expected to crest at 13.5 feet overnight on Thursday. At 12.5 feet, water starts to flow over Primrose Road and at 13 feet, the end of the road near the campground will likely be impassable for small vehicles.

The NWS is calling for mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers and sunny breaks in the afternoon. Isolated and scattered showers are expected through Friday.
