Flood warning extended for mudslide areaMarch 25, 2014 @ 8:48 pm
SEATTLE (AP) -- The National Weather Service has extended a flood warning and a flash-flood watch in the area of the Washington state mudslide.
The warning is in effect until 6 p.m. Wednesday for the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River in Snohomish County. The weather service says it expects some flooding of homes and roads to continue until a newly forming river channel is large enough to drain the lake behind the slide blockage near Oso.
A flash-flood watch is now in effect through Monday afternoon although the weather service says the likelihood of a flash flood below the blockage is very low.
A warning means flooding is imminent or already happening, while a watch means conditions are favorable for flooding.
