SELAWIK - Weather is delaying cleanup efforts of a fuel spill at the tank farm in the village of Selawik.

The Alaska Department of Conservation said conditions Monday included blowing snow and temperatures of minus 50, preventing flights.

The size of the Wednesday diesel fuel spill has been revised to 5,385 gallons. It had initially been estimated between 5,000 gallons and 10,000 gallons.
