Posted 1020: Flood Warning 
Statement as of 8:45 am ADT on June 25, 2004

... Flood Warning for theTaku River in effect... 

For the Taku River downstream of the Canadian boarder, minor
flooding is occurring, with a stage of 43.7 ft at 7 am Friday.
The river continues to rise and is expected to exceed moderate
flood stage of 44.0 feet Friday afternoon. Flood stage is 43.0
ft. 

At 43 feet water is over the bank and out buildings near the
gauge flood. This is a minor flood.

At 44.6 ft, the water level will be at the door jam of the house
near the gauge. This is a moderate flood.

The flood of record is 44.1 feet set on August 17 1989.

This flood is the result of the annual Glacial Lake release in
British Columbia on the Tulsequah River. This years release is
the earliest on record and is producing unusually high flows.
Typically, peak flows last for about 1 day with the entire event
lasting 2 to 3 days. Water levels should start to recede on
Saturday.

This is a dangerous situation and person along the Taku River may
need to seek higher ground. Docks and structures along the river
could be damaged by the flood waters. Water temperatures are
quite cold and are capable of producing hypothermia. Boaters on
the river and in Taku Inlet should be aware of large debris.

New Record High for June 20 set at 3270: 85.1 degrees at 1653. Previous High was

Statement as of 8:00 PM ADT on June 20, 2004

... Hot weather continuing across Southeast Alaska... 

Hot weather continued on Sunday making it the third day in a row
that numerous records were broken across Southeast Alaska. At the
Juneau Airport the new record high temperatures set were 84
degrees on Friday and 85 degrees on Saturday and Sunday. Four
consecutive days is the longest recorded string that the Juneau
Airport has ever had of temperatures above 80 degrees. Continuing
warm weather on Monday and Tuesday will make it likely that this
record will be broken.

In the southern Panhandle high temperatures at several stations
have been in the lower 90s since Friday. The weather service
office on Annette Island reached 93 degrees on Saturday and 91
degrees on Sunday. These are the highest two maximum temperatures
ever recorded at that location.

Conditions will cool off slightly on Monday and Tuesday however
highs in the 80s throughout the Panhandle will still break
numerous records. Above average temperatures are expected to
continue into next weekend.
