Will Flooding in Yakima Affect Us?

UPDATE (Wed. 11:33 am) - A change in the forecast has come up and the National Weather Service has now issued a Flood Warning for the Yakima River at Kiona, which affects the entire length of the river in Benton County. West Richland will see most of the flooding.

Forecast: The river is forecasted to crest at 13.72 feet around noon Thursday. Flood stage is 13 feet.

Effects: At this stage, only minor flooding of lowland pastures occurs, mainly in West Richland.

Precautions: Not many will be affected by this event, but if you come across a flooded roadway remember to "turn around, don't drown." This will NOT be a major event.

I have more details on the latest advisory up on my weather page and will continue to update as the situation changes.
