Episode Narrative Following a very wet April and May, warmer June temperatures began to melt an above normal mountain snowpack increasing flows into already swollen river basins. This caused minor flooding along the Okanogan River along with several of its smaller tributaries. Agriculture fields, recreation sites, roadways, as well as homes were impacted by the flooding.
Event Narrative A combination of landslides and flooding along creeks and rivers resulted in the closure of numerous campsites within Perygian State Park through the first two weeks of June. Damage costs were estimated based on an average loss of revenue from closed campgrounds.
