On November 27, 2019, numerous areas of the Kenai Peninsula Borough sustained severe damage caused by an ongoing storm weather event including high winds, heavy snowfall, icy conditions, heavy rain and flooding. As a result, the storm caused large trees to fall as well as impacted many power lines causing the loss of backup power generation and power loss for several days in some areas. Additionally, significant damage has occurred to borough-maintained roads, mostly in the South Kenai Peninsula area. The attached photos represent a couple of areas in Anchor Point, Diamond Ridge and Fritz Creek. Damage assessments continue throughout the peninsula.

It is expected that significant expenses will be incurred in responding to this event and repairing damages to public infrastructure. The approved funds in the amount of $280,000 will enable the borough to respond to and immediately start repairing damages to borough-maintained roads, bridges and other infrastructure.
Motorists are asked to use caution and adhere to construction or safety signage along roadways that have been impacted.
