Severe rain, wind keep crews busy

EDMONDS -- City public works crews worked Saturday afternoon to keep storm drains clear and tree limbs off the streets.
Former mayor Gary Haakenson had high praise for those working in the wind and the heavy rain.
"Here we are inside watching the Huskies game and they're out there sandbagging in front of people's driveways," said Haakenson. "The guys in Edmonds are doing a great job."
Meanwhile, in Arlington, about 200 people were without power Saturday afternoon when a power pole had to be replaced, Snohomish County Public Utility District spokesman Neil Neroutsos said. "Other minor outages were reported.
"We have had some big gusts," Neroutsos said Saturday. "But we think the wind is dying down, and now it's mostly about heavy rain."
Snohomish County, as well as other Western Washington counties were on flood watch, according to the National Weather Service's Seattle office, which warned of minor urban and small stream flooding. The service predicted heavy rains through the weekend, with totals of 4 to 10 inches in the mountains.
Another weather system is expected to move through the area Sunday, bringing windy conditions and gusts of up to 50 mph, along with additional rain. Power outages are possible, as is flooding, meteorologists said.
