Episode Narrative A wet spring season continued for the Inland Northwest as another wet storm system moved through the region May 21-22nd producing in the neighborhood of half to one and a half inches of liquid precipitation over Northern Washington. This resulted in additional rises of many creeks and streams which were already swollen from wet spring conditions and excessive snowmelt throughout the month. Streams and creeks continued to run out of their banks and flood roadways throughout the East Slopes of the Northern Cascades.
Event Narrative On May 22nd, Sinlahekin Road was closed between Fish Lake and Blue Lake due to water and debris flowing over the roadway. The road was later reopened but closed on and off for the next few weeks.
