Episode Narrative Very heavy rain and snow melt led to flooding over portions of Chelan County. The flooding prompted Chelan County commissioners to declare a State of Emergency. Part of highway 97 over Blewett Pass was washed away by the heavy rain. A large mudslide also came down and covered 200 feet of the highway with six feet of mud, rock, and trees. This led to the closure of the pass for ten days. In addition, a plugged culvert led to flooding on Butcher Creek Road near Highway two. The begin and end time of this event is estimated. The property damage from this event is estimated to be around 1.1 millon dollars. In Entiat, two homes were flooded by the Mad River due to an ice jam.
