Gullywasher Alert

Posted on 26th June 2014 at 13:04

The Weather Service is out with an alert that you might see some very heavy rain storms this morning, events that are already causing some localized flooding problems in areas like Vancouver and Beaverton. An alert went out around 4:20 this morning, warning about heavy showers that were forming over southern Clark County and the Portland metro area. Forecasters say that some of these storm cells are capable of producing up to a half-inch of rain in a very short amount of time. There have been several incidents of rapidly rising water stranding cars or flooding basements. Visibility during these type of events may be extremely compromised, and the ponding on roadways could make for a severe driving challenge.
