Nasty spring blizzard rolls in

Naujaat

A nasty late season blizzard in Naujaat on May 31 ended up with the community being without power for about 26 hours.

The power went down during the height of the storm and full power was not restored until a lineman could be flown in the following day, June 1.

As of press time, power was reportedly restored to the entire community.
