Alaskan coastal towns suffered significant flooding and damage from a powerful storm on Saturday, and some residents had to leave.
According to Governor Mike Dunleavy, he "verbally declared" a tragedy for the storm-affected areas.
According to the National Weather Service, the storm's centre was ascending the Bering Strait on Saturday afternoon.
The towns of Nome, Hooper Bay, Skaktoolik, Kotlik, and Nunam Iqua on Alaska's western coast were all severely affected by the storm.
As of Saturday morning, the governor stated on Twitter that no injuries had been reported.
Additionally, the state had set up an emergency operations centre.
