TANANA RIVER..
THE TANANA RIVER IS OPEN.

YUKON RIVER.. THE ICE IS OUT FROM EAGLE TO THE YUKON RIVER DELTA. WATER LEVELS AT ALAKANUK AND EMMONAK HAVE FALLEN AND ARE NOW WELL BELOW BANKFULL AND WILL ACCOMMODATE UPSTREAM YUKON RIVER WATER INFLOWS. GENERALLY... WATER LEVELS IN THE YUKON RIVER ARE LOW IN MOST AREAS, INCLUDING AT GALENA AND AREA VILLAGES, BUT NOW ARE RISING AS A RESULT OF SNOWMELT.

KOYUKUK RIVER.. THE KOYUKUK RIVER IS OPEN... SOME ICE MIGHT REMAIN IN THE UPPER TRIBUTARIES.

ANDREAFSKY RIVER...THE ANDREAFSKY AT ST. MARY'S IS OPEN.

NOTICE: Beginning Monday, May 25th KIYU Studios will begin the process of being elevated above flood level.

KIYU will remain on the air with news, Yukon Wireless broadcasts and public service announcements. Regular music and entertainment shows will most likely be disrupted and in it's place we will air KUAC programming or other alternative programming. In Galena, ARCS TV, 95.5FM and 92.9FM will be off the air. Thanks for your understanding.
