Pacific Northwest Floods

Nearly a week after a powerful storm dumped heavy rain over Washington and Oregon, the region’s rivers still ran high and thick with muddy run-off. Evidence of the floods can be seen in the murky color of the rivers. The storm caused floods and mudslides that closed roads, including Interstate 5, which connects Seattle and Portland, and cut off communities.

the big impact would have to be on people because with the major roads closed people arn't able get to there jobs including if you commute betweed seatle and portland
