Rivers Continue to Flood

Relentless rain is triggering renewed flooding on more than a dozen rivers across Western Washington.

And it’s not over yet. Though the steady rain will taper off Saturday, flooding will continue as some river levels remain high.

Major flooding is expected or already occurring on four rivers – the Snoqualmie near Carnation, the Tolt above Carnation,

the Carbon near Fairfax and the Cowlitz at Randle.

Four other rivers are experiencing moderate flooding – the Cedar near Landsburg,

the Snoqualmie near Snoqualmie Falls, the White at R Street Bridge, the Snohomish at Snohomish and near Monroe,

and Issaquah Creek in Issaquah.

And yet the rain just keeps coming, thanks to an atmospheric river aimed at our region,

with a flood watch in effect through Friday afternoon across most of Western Washington.
