KENT – From King County to Pierce County, roads are closed, trees are down and drivers are nervous.
“It’s been pretty bad,” said Karen Chandler of Kent. “The streets have been flooded and they closed down James Street.”

In Puyallup, debris was scattered on the sidewalk after a massive tree came crashing down. Busy intersections were flooded, prompting some white knuckle driving.

In Graham Old Kapowsin Highway was flooded in multiple locations.
