Packing hurricane-force winds, an Alaskan storm of "epic proportions" slammed into coastal communities, sending some residents fleeing to higher ground as it tore roofs from homes and knocked out power.
For the first time, living people will be eligible to be honored on U.S. postage stamps.
Flooding was reported in Point Hope, where the water came within 10 feet of the airport runway, but the community still had power, Mr. Kearney said.
"The sea level will remain steady into the early morning hours and then start to come down tomorrow morning," Mr. Kearney told the Anchorage Daily News.
