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.

 

ORIGINAL (Tue. 5:15 pm) - Heavy rainfall along the east slopes of the Cascades coupled with higher temperatures has caused the Yakima River to overflow its banks in the Yakima area. Of course, the Yakima River flows through our area, and those along the river in Prosser, Benton City and West Richland are no strangers to the flooding, but what will happen this time around?
