Flooding of the Columbia River


The heavy snowfall, big rainfalls, and late warm weather have caused significant flooding along the Columbia River.  Currently, it is about a foot above flood stage, and rising.  Here are two pictures I took of the same sign, one last week, one today.

The water flow today is 2,000,000 cu.ft. a second, almost unimaginable.

I took this picture 5/24. Note the "No Parking" sign.

And here on 6/1, one week later.
