OK Radio contacted the coastal communities to see what their ice conditions are like in their communities.
Ronald Webb is one of the owners of Sikumiut in Nain.
He spent the day out on the ice yesterday and says it’s safe to travel and that there have been people going out to Kikkertavak, Black Island, Taber Island, and Cape Little.
Also, there have been some people from the community who had started to get some wood from Anaktalâk and added that the ice there has frozen over later than previous years.
Webb says that the rattles are still open and wishes to advise everyone to be careful when traveling on the ice.
OK Radio will have more information on the ice conditions from Postville once it becomes available.
