The last time a Severe Thunderstorm Warning was issued anywhere in Alaska was on July 11, 2010 (AKZ 222 near Twelvemile Summit). There are people far more qualified than I am to discuss the atmospherics of this event; however, I did want to show a few maps of the region and some of the radar products. On each map, the trapezoid represents the coordinates of the warned area. Some of the interesting features include the 3.27"/hour maximum precipitation rate and the 90% probability of hail statistic (a text product).
