A powerful and deadly storm slammed into Washington Tuesday afternoon bringing winds in excess of 115 mph, toppling trees and power lines. At least three have been confirmed dead and thousands without power. Roads are covered with debris and fallen trees, along with minor to moderate flooding.
The wind will once again be an issue Wednesday with high wind warnings posted from the Northwest to the Midwest.
The city of Sultan flooded and residents were encouraged to stay indoors. The downtown area had to be evacuated. Many residents said it was the worst flooding they’ve seen since the flood of 2006. A flood watch is in effect until late tonight.
Another storm is expected to arrive Thursday bringing more wind, rain and even snow for the mountains.
