Rain and Wind have pounded Washington and Oregon
SEATTLE (AP) — Rain and wind have pounded Washington and Oregon, flooding streets, toppling large trucks, cutting power to more than 20,000 people, and causing at least one death. Flood warnings have been issued for a handful of western Washington rivers, with moderate flooding expected today along the Chehalis River in the Centralia, Wash., area. Nearly 2 inches of rain fell in six hours yesterday in one Seattle neighborhood — a total that Seattle Public Utilities meteorologist James Rufo-Hill called "extraordinary."
