From Kyle Hopkins in Anchorage --
The National Weather Service is warning of potential coastal flooding today through Friday morning along the Chukchi Sea Coast, including Point Hope, Shishmaref and Kivalina:
Minor coastal flooding may inundate areas of Kivalina and Shishmaref while significant beach erosion may occur on the south and west facing areas of Kivalina and other coastal areas from Cape Krusenstern to Point Hope.
Forecasters today also are warning of gale winds all along the western coast of the state, from Cape Beaufort and Point Hope south toward Dall Point. That warning is in effect until Thursday morning.
A high-surf advisory has been issued for St. Lawrence Island and the Bering Strait coast through 4 p.m. Thursday.
