The residents of Cascade Peaks Campground, located just 10 minutes to the east of Randle, Washinton, experienced hardship last week following an atmospheric river that soaked Western Washington on Thursday and Friday.

According to a report, the Cowlitz River entered into a major flood stage on Friday night. The Newaukum River at Chehalis also had moderate flooding peaking at 204.62, and the Chehalis River at Grand Mound was flooded to minor levels at 141.41 feet.

Melted snowpacks from warm rain may have contributed significantly to the event. It is estimated that the White Pass area saw roughly 4.76 inches of rain between Thursday and Friday.

The flows of most Lewis County area rivers are likely to decrease by the end of this week. Still, it is expected that North Puget Sound will experience another atmospheric river event this week, which could pave the way for near-historic floods.

“It was fairly uneventful compared to our previous floods. I’m not aware of a whole lot of property damage, though we have to go to a couple of other places today,” Lewis County Fire District 14 Chief Jeff Jaques said Monday morning.

The Fire District 14 and the Sheriff’s department also helped rescue three people from River Run Ranch Estates.

At a Monday meeting, the Lewisa County Board of Commissioners confirmed that no deaths had been reported because of floods at East Lewis County.

While the damage is minor, residents living along the Cowlitz River and Cascade Peaks are still affected by the recent flooding event.
