Minor flooding in the PNW. Went for a walk to the nearby bridge over the Chehalis River, in southwest Washington state, to take photos of the inundated floodplain. The River has a lot of room to stretch out here, and it does.

A short video of the Chehalis River, a short walk from my house, which topped its banks and caused minor flooding of its usual floodplain.

The Chehalis River flows through southwest Washington, and is the second largest watershed in the state: first flowing east from its source in the Willapa Hills, then north through small urban areas, then slowly it turns west again, through farms and small towns, before opening up into Grays Harbor and the Pacific Ocean. (Now you know!)
