Remote town in Alaska buried under 18 feet of snow, some residents trapped

National Guard called in to help dig out.

  • While ski resorts in parts of the U.S. are griping over the lack of snow and dwindling profits, a remote town in Alaska is covered with the stuff.

    National Guard troops are in Cordova, Alaska helping the town dig out after 18 feet of snow that has been falling since November.

    A Russian oil tanker is even on the way to the town with precious fuel for the people living in the town to help heat homes and power generators. A U.S. Coast Guard ship is helping to break ice sheets for the tanker to pass in the Bering Sea.

    Snow has cut off access to major towns in Alaska like Anchorage.

    The heavy snow has collapsed some buildings and trapped some people inside their homes in freezing temperatures.
