Eagle Flood Relief


The current Yukon River flooding at Eagle and the neighboring Native community of Eagle Village is now being characterized at the worst flooding ever at that location. The red line on this picture shows how high the flood waters reached.

Buildings have been washed away, some residents have lost everything, and a big chunk of Alaskan history has been damaged.  Evert’s Air Cargo in Fairbanks has offered to fly in supplies, but the road between the airport and town is still flooded.  And now, Anchorage volunteers have stepped in to help.

Eagle area residents are now in need of clothing (mens, womens, and childrens), shoes, blankets, towels, toiletries, and non-perishable food items. To donate, please BOX all items and LABEL the boxes.  There is not enough manpower available in Eagle to sort through donations.

Donations can be dropped off Monday thru Friday at the Cook Inlet Tribal Council, 3600 San Jeronimo Drive (across from the Anchorage Daily News building) Monday thru Friday from 8:00am until 5:00pm. Several people have offered the use of trucks to deliver donations to Eagle late next week.  We would like to see delivery of supplies as soon as possible.  We will not allow a repeat of Hurricane Katrina on our watch.
