|Terrible Hurricane Hits Alaska, Worst Floods Will Happen|
In Alaska, there were no reports of deaths or injuries from the storm, said Jeremy Zidek, a spokesman for the Alasaka Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. Officials have warned residents that some areas could be hit by the worst flooding in 50 years and it could take up to 14 hours to recede.
A powerful storm moving north through the Bering Strait caused severe flooding in several coastal settlements in western Alaska, cutting power and sending residents to higher ground.
Broadcast by VOA, Sunday (18/9), the force of the water made several houses detached from their foundations on Saturday (17/9). A house in Nome floats on the river until it gets stuck on a bridge. The storm is a remnant of Typhoon Merbok, a storm that also affected weather patterns as far as the state of California, where strong winds and thunderstorms are expected.
