On Sunday 1.56 inches of precipitation fell on Kodiak; a record amount of rainfall for December 20th. By Monday at afternoon another 2.14 inches of rain had fallen. The amount of precipitation along with warm temperatures has city workers on alert.
The director of Kodiak’s Public Works is Mark Kozak. He said his department is keeping a close eye on potential problems.
— (Rain 1 "So far things … to keep up.")
Kozak talked about the areas he’s most concerned with.
— (Rain 2 "Primarily the drainage … down as well.")
In order to stay on top of the situation, city workers move from site to site as the rain continues to fall.
(Rain 3 "Its kind of … that we’re fine.")
The Department of Transportation is also keeping a close watch on any damage the prolonged rainfall might create. D-O-T spokesman Ridk Feller said that for the most part, things are holding steady.

The heavy precipitation comes right on the heels of the news that Kodiak is to receive federal disaster funds for storm damage that occurred in October.
