Some Snoqualmie Valley Roads Still Impacted by Flooding & Landslides

There are still some local roads covered by receding flood waters or landslides due to drenching rains over the past two days.  SVSD schools are open on time, but some bus routes are affected by road conditions.

Impacted roads include:

• Ribary Way (Forester Woods to 415th Way SE, North Bend)
• Circle River turnaround, North Bend
• North Fork – Ernie’s Grove (bus turnaround will be at Riley’s Addition)
• Mill Pond Road, Snoqualmie
• 324th Ave SE and 308th Ave SE, Fall City
• Neal Road, Fall City
• Issaquah-Fall City Rd. (between SE 40th St. and 328th), Fall City

Powerful thunderstorms also rolled through late last night.  The storms were stronger than predicted by local weather forecasters.  According to Komo news the warmer, tropical air was slow to move out.  It collided with the incoming cold front to create strong storm cells.  The storms left as quickly as they came, but really packed a punch –  40 – 50mph winds, rain, hail, thunder and lightening.  Power outages were reported in the Puget Sound area – mainly due to numerous downed trees.   The rain saturated ground from the heavy rains could not keep trees standing with the powerful wind gusts overnight.

At 6:15 this morning there was tree down across highway 202 at 372nd – near Fall City.  All lanes of 202 were blocked, but you can avoid the road closure by taking side streets.

The weather guys “promise” no more crazy weather for the next several days.   Wondering if they confirmed this with Mother Nature?
