The massive flooding throughout the region is causing damage, altering travel plans and prompting neighbors to ban together to keep the rising waters away from property.

The ski resorts are closed. The passes remain closed and a stretch of Interstate 5 is halted travel between Seattle and Portland.

We want to hear from you. How are you surviving the flooding? Has your property or business been damaged? Have you lost animals or personal belongings?

Have the road closures changed your travel plans?

We’d also like to hear the “good stories” – those of civic heroism, neighbors helping neighbors. Did a neighbor ferry you out of your home by boat? Did someone take you in?
