12:30pm Update – Crews are making progress but unfortunately as soon as they clear a ROW of fallen trees it fills back in with more trees. Does this remind anyone of the Sept. 1992 snow storm? We have a crew in all the areas listed in our 10:45am post. We are also concentrating on Fairbanks and North Pole city centers to ensure critical services are up and running (gas, food, shelter, etc.).
Restoring power to everyone is going to take days so we ask for your patience. Our crews will keep at it 24/7. We’ve hired most contractors in town and additional crews will be here today from the Anchorage area.
