... High water levels on rivers draining from the western Brooks
range...

Heavy rainfall in the western Brooks range last weekend has caused
rises on many rivers and streams in northwest Alaska. The Kobuk
river at Kiana has more than quadrupled its flow since early last
week. Reports from the Noatak river continue to indicate that many
gravel bars are submerged and soils are saturated.

Water levels on rivers and streams draining out of the western
Brooks range are expected to remain high through Monday.
Hunters... pilots... and operators of air charter services should
be aware that some Landing areas may be inundated and that the
high water may cause increased debris to be moving downstream.
