  • Description

    NEAL: (HOLD .62) IT HAS RAINED HERE FOR THE LIST WEEK. OVER SIX INCHES OF WATER FELL IN A FINAL 24 HOUR PERIOD. COUPLED WITH WARM WINDS IN THE CASCADE MOUNTAINS THAT MELTED TONS OF SHOW...THIS IS THE CUMULATIVE RESULT.

    GOVERNOR ROSSELINI HAS DECLARED SNOHOWISH COUNTYC JUST NORTH OF SEATTLE, A MAJOR DISASTER AREA. STATION KING TV SHOT THESE SCENES THERE...AS THE COAST GUARD AND A FLEET OF SMALL BOATS WERE PRESSED INTO ACTION TO RESCUE SCORES OF FAMILIES FORCED TO LEAVE THEIR HOMES IN THE FACE OF RISING WATERS. HUNDREDS ARE MAROONED IN THE LOWLANDS...BUT ARE NOT IN IMMEDIATE DANGER.

    CASUALTIES HAVE BEEN REMARKABLE LOW TO THIS MOMENT...WITH ONLY ONE DEATH REPORTED, A WOMAN MOTORIST KILLED ON A MOUNTAINS PASS BEFORE HIGHWAYS COULD BE CLOSED.

    MASSIVE SLIDES HAVE OUT MAIN CROSS STATE HIGHWAYS...WITH THE MOST RAVELLED ROUTE PROBABLY OUT OF COMMISSION FOR THE NEAT 30 DAYS. TRAINS HAVE BEEN REROUTED BECAUSE OF TRACES UNDER WATER.

    WEATHER FORECASTERS PREDICT LITTLE RAIN FOR THE NEAT 24 HOURS...BUT ABOVE AVERAGE FOR THE BEST OF THE WEEK IN THE NORTHWEST.

    ROY NEAL, NEC NEWS, REPORTING.
