Flash Flood Warning For Pend Oreille County

PEND OREILLE COUNTY, Wash. - The National Weather Service in Spokane has issued a flash flood warning for South central Pend Oreille County in northeast Washington and west central Bonner County in the panhandle of Idaho until 6:00pm, Tuesday evening. At 430 pm trained weather spotters reported flash flooding from a thunderstorm in the area about 5 miles northwest of Diamond Lake. Locations in the warning include but are not limited to Coolin.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small creeks and streams...country roads...as well as farmland along the banks of creeks and streams. Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross safely. Move to higher ground. In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes. It takes only a few inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Initiative-1639 has been the root of controversy ever since supporters began asking for signatures. It became even more complicated when the Washington Supreme Court overturned a Thurston County judges decision after the judge initially threw out over 300,000 signatures saying the petition didn't follow election law claiming it was unreadable.
