Ice jams throughout Alaska have flooded a number of towns and villages. The most extreme situation seems to be in Manley Hot Springs. 

On Friday, May 13th, Governor Mike Dunleavy issued disaster declarations to aid a number of communities flooded by ice jams. 
 
One of them was in the Copper Valley. Dunleavy issued a declaration allowing Glennallen residents affected by the floods this week to apply for state disaster assistance. Funds are meant to help pay for repairs and temporary housing. 

Glennallen's flooding is caused by rapid snowmelt, not ice jams.
