ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The National Weather Service is warning of possible flooding in Seward because of heavy rain.

A small stream flood advisory is in effect until 4 p.m. Tuesday for streams and rivers, including the Resurrection River.

The weather service says an inch of rain fell in Seward in 24 hours. Higher amounts fell in mountains around the Kenai Peninsula city.

Up to 2 more inches of rain is forecast through noon Tuesday.

The small stream flood advisory includes areas round Exit Glacier.

The agency says Resurrection River is rising and likely will crest near or above 16 feet Monday night.

The Seward Airport typically begins to be affected at that level.

The weather service says rain will cause considerable ponding in low areas, near culverts and along creeks and drainages.
