    Most of the area is under 8-10 feet of water, The local news company "KOMO" is using their helicopters to get supplies to the people stuck and the nation guard is here as well. Our State Gov. is a fool. She allowed developers to fill in areas to build which just makes it flood more. 60+ miles of I5 is closed. Its depressing to look at, it looks like a war zone/police state. I'm one of the few with power. In '96 it flooded and i lost power for almost 3 weeks. I'll let you know how it gets on, you can also look at the komo link in the first post. Thanks!

    The Pacific Northwest is pretty much left to its own. The federal Gov. has not even helped yet. Schools, churches and granges are all full of the now homeless, the news is now comparing this to katrina saying it looks simular, yet the Feds have not helped, and its still just "Local news" the helocopters have been fling over all day scoping the damage.

    If i was there I would be out covering this for a great first person doc of the event.
    I was deeply shocked by some of the katrina stuff i have seen.

    Thanks, Actualy I'm fine, I have power, heat, water, internet, food, I just can't go any where. All the information I'm getting is from the news and over the phone. From what I'm hearing 60% of the county is under water but by morning it should be only 40%, so I'm told, Thanks for your concern Mark.

    Sorry to hear about your plight.

    For some reason it's not being covered on the news in Europe. It's not being pushed big on the major US networks either. Have you guys ceded from the union or something?

    Anyway, I hope that you and your family are safe and that it doesn't affect you too much in the long term.
