If Wilamette crests the 2 to 3 feet that's being predicted is there an idea of what areas will be affected. Just trying to figure out if an type of evacuation plan may be necessary.

Thank You. My biggest concern is if the Willamette crests will it shut down the storm drainage, will the outlets be under water? If we have no place to pump no sure what to do in that case.

Any news on Hwy 20 between Corvallis and Albany. There was water on the lane to Corvallis by the North Albany RR crossing last night.

Does anyone know what Willamette's flood level is at in Albany right now?

Free sand bags are also available at the Home Depot in Albany, Lebanon Fire Station at 1050 W. Oak Street and the Sheriff's Sub-Station at the corner of Walker and S. Main in Lebanon! Thank you Furniture Share for getting the word out on Knife River.

RT @lebanonexpress Free sandbags at Lebanon Fire Station brings med student volunteers bit.ly
the one thing to emphasize is that we are not close to facing 1996 unless we get something totally unforseen, and there is not anything representing a continuation of the level and duration of precipitation that we have just experienced, thankfully. Perhaps Tuesday and Wednesday of next week will bring a return to some heavier rain, but that is not certain, nor is it likely to be what we have had the past few days. I have been keeping records since 1993 at my location and have never experienced anything like what I have in the past two days (6.79"), not even in 1996.

Lebanon school board member Russ McUne says the board meeting has been cancelled tonight.
Alpine road is closed about a mile from Bellfountain Rd. between Bellfountain and Alpine Cutoff Rd. Bellfountain Rd is closed at Alpine Rd. between Alpine Rd and somewhere past the Muddy Creek bridge. Bellfountain Rd is also closed on the other side of Alpine about a mile north of Alpinel It is completely flooded in all of those areas. A compact car actually got stuck on Alpine and someone had to pull her out. The firefighters came too, but she was already being pulled out. Stay safe out there people. If a road is flooded and especially if you see the water running across the road DO NOT GO THROUGH IT!! You don't need to put your life in danger or those of rescuers just to get to your destination!!

Lilly Ave. is all I've heard about - millrace getting high.
by iSleepALot1/20/2012 12:18:41 AM
If 3rd closes at Mill Race, is there a way around to get further south? Will the Mill Race flood at Bridgeway or Crystal Lake, too? Trying to decide if we should head home now or if we can wait until 7pm.

I would be interested what conditions would have to happen for Conifer around Glacier way to be evacuated. There is a creek close to there are they waiting to see if that is going to overflow and if so that will be the catalyst to evac?
