Life is returning to normal after flooding this week caused by an ice jam forced more than two dozen people to evacuate the village of Kwethluk on the lower Kuskokwim River.
City Clerk Lillian Michael says officials with the National Weather Service and the state were traveling Thursday to the village of 766 people to assess the situation.
Michael says flooding was the worst on Monday, when about 30 people, most of them with chronic medical conditions, were evacuated to the neighboring city of Bethel. She says flood waters had surrounded the post office and other village buildings but have since receded.
She says some elders refused to leave their homes.
Michael says students were back in class on Thursday and graduation would be held as planned on Friday.
