It’s been nearly a month since an ice choked Yukon River overflowed its banks and flooded Galena, Alaska. The ice bergs have melted and the river looks docile, but many people remain displaced by what it did. Most flood refugees are living outside the village, but more and more are coming back to rebuild their lives.
