ANCHORAGE - Anchorage police say flood waters from Rabbit Creek have started to recede.
   
One home was flooded and three others were evacuated before responders said the water began to subside about noon.
   
The overflowing creek also put a bridge under water and threatened vehicles.
   
Police spokeswoman Dani Myren says the bridge at 140th Avenue, or about a half block south of DeArmoun Road, is submerged.
   
Myren says people should not attempt to cross the creek, and drivers should avoid the area.
   
She also says for people who live on the creek should move possession to higher ground.
   
The National Weather Service issued a flood warning for Rabbit Creek, effective until noon Saturday.
