East Peninsula buried by blizzard, highway closed


A winter storm blew into the Eastern Kenai Peninsula in the wee hours on Tuesday morning.

Downtown Seward saw about a foot and a half of the white stuff by late afternoon. And twice as much was reported in the inland areas.

A couple small avalanches, avalanche control and danger prompted DOT to close the Seward Highway at McHugh Creek. At press time the highway was expected to be closed until mid-day Wednesday.
