Standing water, flooding concerns impact King and Snohomish counties

While the National Weather Service says that Friday’s rainfall hasn’t measured in at much more than an inch in Seattle, the storm has resulted in some major standing water in parts of Seattle and caused road closures throughout Snohomish County.

The NWS issued flood warnings for the Skykomish, Snohomish and Stillaguamish rivers.

“Between now and tomorrow night we’re going to see a lot of road closures,” said Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Shari Ireton. “We’re expecting a lot of precipitation with a mix of snow and rain.”

In King County, the weather service issued flood warnings for the Tolt, Snoqualmie and Green rivers.

Also in King County, Bellevue police reported a closure to Main Street and 148th Avenue Northeast because of water on the roadway.

Rachel Garrett, spokeswoman for Seattle Public Utilities, said crews spent Friday clearing out storm drains clogged with leaves throughout the city.

In West Seattle there was a problem with standing water around Delridge Way Southwest, near the West Seattle Bridge.

“The Delridge on ramp typically floods during the heavy rains and today has been particularly heavy,” Garrett said.
