What's it like to walk in a village on the edge?


   Shaktoolik is a small village on Alaska's Norton Sound. Without sea ice to protect it from fierce storms, this community of 260 people faces coastal erosion and flooding.  It's one of the five most endangered communities in Alaska... a strong storm could put it several feet under water.  This self-guided virtual tour will transport you Shaktoolik.
