In Okanogan County Highway 153 was down to one-lane flagged traffic this morning about 3 miles West of Pateros. Traffic was also delayed due to flooding on Highway 20 west of Loup Loup Pass.

Here’s a video submitted by Allison Viebrock-Steveson of some of the flash-flooding in the Almira area this morning. She says Almira reportedly received about 1 and a half inches of rain.
