Typhoon Merbok Remnants Impacts Nome, Alaska – 9/16/2022

The remnants of Typhoon Merbok are working through the Bering Sea bringing the potential for historic coastal flooding and storm surges as the system works through the region this weekend. High wind warnings are already in place across Nome for sustained winds of 40 to 50 mph winds with gusts up to 80 mph. Coastal flood warnings are also in place as water levels are forecast to be 8 to 11 feet above the normal high tide level. The following video is from Nome, Alaska as the outer bands of the system begin to impact the city. You can see rough seas already beginning to build and hit the coast with winds already sustained around 30-40 mph and heavy rain falling.
