  • Rain today & through the weekend will hamper rescue efforts in Oso

    Today through the weekend will be very wet, which will cause the mudslide at Oso to become more like quicksand, also increasing the flood threat behind the debris dam there.  There is a FLOOD WARNING on the N. Fork of the Stillaguamish which is flooding roads, including SR 530, and some homes upstream of the dam.  In the words of the National Weather Service, flooding “WILL CONTINUE UNTIL THE NEW RIVER CHANNEL IS DEEP AND WIDE ENOUGH TO DRAIN THE LAKE […]

  • More rain means mud turns to quicksand, hampers rescuers

    SEATTLE — After a spectacular Monday with sunshine and temps in the 60s (Seattle hit 66, 2 degrees shy of the record), rain is returning today and it’ll be wet at times for the next 7 days. And it’ll be about 10 degrees cooler than yesterday. The forecast is bad for search and rescue workers at the slide, as rain means already sloppy mud will become that much more treacherous. Rain also increases slide and flood potential in an already […]
