Small Alaskan town gets all the snow the rest of the country isn’t getting
- 18′ amount of snow, in feet, that has fallen in the town of Cordova, Alaska this winter
- 6′ amount of snow, in feet, that has fallen in the past few days alone; it’s reaching a crisis level source
» How bad is it getting? To put it simply, the remote Alaskan town needs help. According to one resident, ”there is getting to be more snow in Cordova than people and shovels to deal with it.” In some cases, buildings have collapsed. The city’s mayor has already declared a state of emergency and called the National Guard. And they’re not alone: In Nome, in the same state but 700 miles away, they’re waiting on an ice tanker with necessary fuel — and it’s moving very, very slowly.
