Flooding closes schools and shuts down sewer system in Glennallen as high waters continue to inundate Alaska communities

Glennallen, Alaska, United States

Officials say the floodwaters are swamping Alaska towns, tearing buildings from foundations, seeping into homes and covering roads. In Glennallen, the local utility is setting up Porta-Potties around the community, and area residents are asked to limit water usage. The state transportation department said there was water over a portion of the Glenn Highway on Monday, but the road remained open.
