Aerial of Flooded Yukon

Census Area, Alaska, July 7, 2013 -- The Yukon river severe spring flood has cut three new channels along the Fort Yukon Regional Educational Attendance Area (REAA) and Census Area. The Native Americans who depend on the King Salmon runs for subsistence throughout the winter have lost the ability to construct salmon mills along a single channel during the Salmon runs thus leaving three escape routes for the prized and revered fish.
