Drivers are encouraged to stay away from Highway 530, as flooding has been reported near Twin Rivers Park and Arlington Heights Road.

So far, the Stillaguamish River has spilled over from the bank with at least 6 inches (15 centimeters) of water over the road.

Q13 News found several homes and cars in about two feet of water early Wednesday. The water levels began to recede while our crews were there along the banks of the Stillaguamish.

High water is expected in low-lying places near Granite Falls, Arlington and Stanwood.

The small village of Silvana, an area of about 1.5 square miles where about 90 people live, was also flooded due to the nearby Stillaguamish.
