...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH LATE TONIGHT...

The Flood Watch continues for

* A portion of Northwest Oregon, including the following areas,
  Central Willamette Valley, Coast Range of Northwest Oregon,
  Greater Portland Metro Area, North Oregon Coast, Northern
  Oregon Cascade Foothills, and Northern Oregon Cascades.

* Through late tonight

* Heavy rain continues to push southward across western Oregon
  this morning. The back edge of the steady rain recently moved
  through the Portland metro area and will reach the Salem area by
  8 AM this morning. However, many rivers are still rising fast
  this morning and may still be prone to flooding.

* Total rainfall thus far from this event has generally been in
  the 4 to 8 inch range for the higher terrain, with 2 to 3 inches
  common for the lower elevations. An additional 1 to 2 inches of
  rain is possible across the North Oregon Cascades this morning,
  with lesser amounts elsewhere.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Landslides and debris flows are possible during this flood event.
People, structures and roads located below steep slopes, in
canyons and near the mouths of canyons may be at serious risk
from rapidly moving landslides.
