Episode Narrative With a cold air mass in place over the Pacific Northwest, two strong and very moist Pacific weather systems brought snow to the area with snow levels down to the valley floor. This snow transitioned to rain from south to north across the area, with widespread heavy rains combining with melting snow to bring many rivers above flood stage and a few rivers above major flood stage.
Event Narrative Heavy rain caused the Luckiamute River at Suver to overflow its banks causing major flooding to surrounding areas. The Luckiamute River crested at 34.2 feet on January 19th at 7 pm PST, 7.2 feet above flood stage.
