Ice flows and Flooded Roads

Finally, after a long couple of days spent watching water levels rise around the community I have been able to return home as the threat of flooding has ceased. Sunday evening we received the phone call from our Flood Coordinator saying that the risk of water rising over the dyke behind the town is over. As the ice breaks free and it makes its way down the river towards the Arctic Ocean, large chunks become lodged on the shoreline making for an impressive display revealing a huge field of ice. Heres some of the photos I took in areas surrounding the town.
