As sad a scenario as that was even more disturbing was the revelation that the ferry at Fort McPherson is shut down and the Dempster Highway is closed so one cannot get to Inuvik or Tuktoyaktuk. All this due to significant rains causing a dangerous rise in the river. How does a ferry not run because there's too much water?

It says what?!
