Rural Alaska Fuel Shortages
The SECC continues to monitor fuel shortages in rural Alaska communities.  Weather is continuing to prevent fuel deliveries to Nikolski, Perryville and Chignik Bay.  The Iliamna Lake communities of Iliamna, Pedro Bay, Kokhanok and Newhalen, as well as the Iliamna-Newhalen-Nondalton Electric Coop did not receive their fuel deliveries due to low water levels in the Kvichak River.  The communities of Nondalton, Egegik and Karluk are also experiencing fuel shortages.  The SECC is continuing to coordinate with the affected communities, the Lake and Peninsula Borough, the Alaska Division of Community and Regional Affairs, the Alaska Energy Authority and the fuel vendors.  The Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association keeps the SECC apprised of current fuel delivery status.
