A massive storm has struck the western coast of Alaska, striking a number of small and isolated communities. According to the State of Alaska, which has declared a weather disaster, logs and debris are washing up into Hooper Bay's airport. In Nome, East Front Street has been damaged, and debris is hitting the Snake River Bridge. Unalakleet reports high water and debris on the road and airport ramp. There's flooding in Shaktoolik, Kotlik, Nunam Iqua, and Old Golovin, where the airport is under water, and photographs on KTOO show the town of Golovin looks like it's part of the ocean. 
 
Homes up and down the coast are flooded or have fallen off their foundations, and many people  are sheltering in schools. In Chevak, according to KTOO, the fishing fleet has been destroyed.
