  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.

  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.


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.
