Multiple avalanches struck Summers Bay road over the weekend.

Sunday afternoon the Department of Public Safety sent out an alert warning residents to avoid driving past the landfill.

“This is the first winter in a couple of years that we’ve had a significant amount of snow,” said Acting Police Chief Jennifer Shockley. “It might seem unusual for people who haven’t been here all that long, but it is not unusual for us to have avalanches particularly out along the Summers Bay road area.”

Mother Nature didn't deliver on Tuesday night's forecast of four to eight inches of snow.

The National Weather Service canceled Unalaska's winter weather advsory after midnight, although the island did receive strong winds and some in-town snow accumulation.

Forecasters say snow is likely again on Wednesday. But as of noon, they had reduced their prediction of possible accumulation from three inches to less than a half inch.
