IMG 0066MAT-SU – Nine people were rescued from a flash flood by raft outside Wasilla last night near midnight. A  9-1-1 call was placed for a flood in an unexpected location, Seldon and Lucille roads, where no identified stream is located. The water was waist-deep in the home when the call was made.

When Central Fire Responders arrived they found a man pushing through waist-deep water holding his dog. By the time responders deployed their boats the water was chest-deep, soon after, over six feet deep. Rescuers paddled nine people to safety. MEA was contacted, power was turned off.
