Flying Debris Severs Power Line in Unalakleet Due to High, Gusting Winds

Aerial view of Unalakleet during winter, with open water along the coast.

Yesterday, damaging high wind in Unalakleet sent debris flying into high voltage power lines, knocking out electricity for half of the village. After roughly nine hours, electricity was restored to the south side of town, thanks to the efforts of Unalakleet Valley Electric Cooperative (UVEC) workers.
