Photos: Alaska flooding

An ice-clogged river in Alaska's interior that submerged much of a remote town was flowing again Thursday, sparing another nervous community in its path.

Floodwaters were dropping in Galena after the 30-mile ice jam downriver on the Yukon River broke and began moving Wednesday evening, emergency responders said.
