ISSAQUAH, Wash. -- Sandbags aren't stopping the Issaquah Creek from overflowing into streets and parking lots, flooding vehicles at an apartment complex as heavy rains continue and the water keeps on rising.

Issaquah Creek is at stage 4 flood level, higher than it was the last time the same apartment complex on Newport Way was flooded.

As of Thursday morning, Issaquah Creek was at 12 feet and rising. It's not expected to crest until Thursday afternoon.

The creek runs along Front Street, Issaquah's downtown core.

As of Thursday afternoon, 11 people had been evacuated from one apartment building, and Eastside Fire and Rescue told about 200 other people to leave their homes.

Newport Way SW between Front St. S and Wildwood Blvd. SW is closed. SR-900 is closed from Northwest Talus Drive to Southeast May Valley Road.

Sandbags are available for residents, but Q13 News crews are seeing floodwaters easily toppling the sandbags that are already out there.

Flooding isn't the only concern in western Washington over the next few days. Heavy rains on top of already saturated ground are causing multiple landslides, and that risk continues for the next couple of days.

A mile-long stretch of Northeast Novelty Hill Road in the Redmond-Duvall area was closed Tuesday night and much of Wednesday due to a landslide.

Another overnight slide was reported Wednesday night and early Thursday morning along Ames Lake Road near Redmond. It was closed at 1:50 a.m. Thursday but had reopened by 4 a.m.

A landslide was reported this morning near SR 202 (Redmond-Fall City Road) off of 208th Ave. King County DOT Crews were quickly removing debris from the slide.

Another mudslide is blocking both directions of SR 410 at milepost 49 near Greenwater. This is now closed at mp 49 until debris can be cleared.

There's also a slide on SR 706 WB at milepost 11.7 near Goat Creek near the entrance of Mt. Rainier National Park. The roadway is blocked.

Sandbags are available for King County residents at the following locations:
