Keeping up on the news of the PNW, it looks like there's been a little bit of rain there. I've been following via this reddit thread

I saw that as well. And a video of a couple of guys herding horses from their boat.


This looks concerning:
https://www.abbotsford.ca/alerts/evacuation-order-and-alerts-issued-localized-areas?fbclid=IwAR1cB4RunKAlrB3Azd3iT9tG708gFDTxyxXDEzzanxAQ873DVsHj5krYppY

"Conditions within the Sumas Prairie within the last hour have escalated and pose a significant risk to life due to the imminent failure of the Barrowtown Pump Station. The Barrowtown Pump Station serves as a critical piece of infrastructure to ensure the Sumas Lake does not reform. With the failure of this key piece of infrastructure, water within the Sumas Prairie will not be able to be pumped out and water from the Fraser River will begin entering the already flooded Sumas Prairie area.

Additional water flow down from Sumas Mountain is also now creating further flooding in the area. This event is anticipated to be catastrophic.

Residents need to abandon their efforts to save livestock, ignoring current orders in place and to leave the area immediately.  Residents remaining and canít evacuate safely are requested to call 911 and report their location immediately. "
