ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Flood damage has forced the temporary closure of a state public assistance office in Anchorage.

The department of health says its public assistance office on Muldoon Road will be closed until Aug. 8. Department spokesman Clay Butcher said the closure could last longer if carpeting needs to be replaced or something else unforeseen happens.

He says the flooding followed a rainy period and involved a malfunctioning drain.

The department says staff from the Muldoon office has been temporarily assigned to other area offices. Offices at two other Anchorage sites and in Eagle River are open for people needing to deliver paperwork.
