State Disaster Declared For Kenai Peninsula

A state disaster has been declared for the Kenai Peninsula due to last month’s storms. Monday, Governor Sean Parnell issued the declaration and said he would be seeking a federal declaration as well.  The storms downed a lot of power lines and some of the outages went on for as long as two days.  The damage estimate from the Kenai Peninsula Borough so far is more than $1.8 million.

The Kenai Peninsula Borough is asking anyone who suffered wind damage from Nov. 1-19 to complete a survey on the borough’s website.
