  The Snoqualmie River near the Falls
* At  4:45 PM Wednesday the flow was 15960 cfs.
* Flood flow is 20000 cfs.
* Forecast...The river fell below flood stage 12:04 PM Wednesday and
  will continue to fall tonight. The river will rebound early
  Thursday morning and crest above flood stage near 25900 cfs.
* Impact...At 20000 cfs, the Snoqualmie River will cause widespread
  flooding of pasture lands and roads along the river from the town
  of Snoqualmie downstream through Fall City. Roads that may become
  flooded include Fall City-Carnation...Tolt Hill...and Novelty Flats
