Columbia River Flooding Is Over

June 23, 2011

 

Good news, the month long spring flooding of the Columbia River has  ended.  The river is below flood stage now in the Metro area after dropping about 2′ in the past 4-5 days.  It’s forecast to fall another 2-3′ the next week or so.  The river never got quite as high as it did during the spring flooding in 1997, but it was within a foot.
