Major roads shut down and forced evacuations in Washington State due to flooding

Severe floods swept some parts of the US state of Washington after heavy rains in the region during the past two days caused the melting of snow and the flooding of the Chehalis River, which closed a highway and prompted the authorities to issue evacuation orders to residents in several counties.

According to officials, only one person is suspected to have died in Washington State after his car was swept away by floodwaters. Rising waters from the Chehalis River and landslides shut down highways in southwest Washington, and images from western Washington showed water reaching the roofs of vehicles with stranded passengers standing on top of them.

The National Weather Service said Washington has seen heavy rain, with more than 6 inches in that area over the last 48 hours.
