PHOTOS: Creeks Turn to Rivers as Northwest Flooding Continues

Drenching rains spreading across the Northwest have been flooding creeks into rivers and popping manhole covers off of sewers.

An NWS-trained spotter near Coos Bay in Oregon recorded 6.21 inches of rain in two days. Mesonet recorded a 72-mph wind gust in Lincoln City, Ore., on Sept. 30. The Oregon Department of Highways has been reporting downed trees and debris across many parts of the state as the storms continue.

According to AccuWeather.com Senior Expert Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski, "Former Typhoon Pabuk's moisture helped drench the area on Sunday and more rain will continue into the early part of this week."
