Morning Memo/Monday: Teen hikers die … New UW dorms … School bleachers burn

Weather: Nice weather expected today and for the next several days — nice like temperatures in the low 80s and maybe the mid-80s tomorrow! Clear skies ahead too. Keep those flip-flops a-floppin’. The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: The map and cams.

Teens die in falls while hiking: Two teens from Federal Way fell last night when they tried to climb a rock at Otter Falls near North Bend. One of the four teens in the group ran to get help for his brother and the other injured teen. By the time rescuers arrived, the boys had died.

New digs for students at the UW coming up: The University of Washington will dish out some $200 million to build new residence halls and apartments to get more students to live on campus. Did you live on campus when you went to college? See the story by Seattle Times staff reporter Katherine Long.

Noah’s Ark, geology and creationism: Can rocks tell the story of Noah’s Ark? UW geologist David Montgomery has written a new book, “The Rocks Don’t Lie: A Geologist Investigates Noah’s Flood,” which takes on the argument between science and some Christians over the nature of creation. Seattle Times book editor Mary Ann Gwinn has a  Q&A with Montgomery that digs into the topic.

The Seahawks lookin’ good; Seattle Storm, not so much with Jackson and Bird sidelined.

High school’s bleachers destroyed in Montesano. What’s this all about? A fire did the damage about 10 p.m. yesterday. Apparently it was quite visible in the area. No one hurt and no information yet on how it started.
