East Slopes Northern Cascades
The National Weather Service in Spokane has issued an
* Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for rain and melting snow
Chelan County in north central Washington...
* until 400 PM PDT Sunday
* rain will increase in intensity... with as much as one to two
inches of rain expected... mainly closer to the Cascade crest.
The soil over much of Chelan County still remains saturated and
may contribute to rapid runoff.
* Expect minor Road closers from mudslides and rocks falls...
in addition to runoff damage from dry drainages and overland flow.
From recent flooding... several ditches have been damaged in the
upper reaches of the Wenatchee river as well as
Cashmere... Leavenworth and plain. Lake Wenatchee and Stehekin will
also be under this same flood threat.
Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause elevated levels on
small creeks and streams... and ponding of water on country roads and
farmland along the banks of creeks and streams.
A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to travel across
flooded roads. Find alternate routes. It takes only a few inches of
swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.
