Heavy rains heighten landslide potential

Heavy rainfall over the past week, continuing a wet pattern of the last several weeks, has created the danger of landslides around Western Washington, according to the Weather Service.

Rainfall totals around Western Washington of an inch or more in the last 24 hours has heightened the risk that saturated slopes could give way, the Weather Service noted in a “Special Weather Statement.”

In the 24 hours ending at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport has .82 inches of rain, Bremerton had 1.1 inches, Shelton had 1.3 inches and Humptulips on the Olympic Peninsula had 2 inches.

Showers are expected to continue through the week, prolonging the risk.
