Cowiche Creek spilled over its banks and into the streets of Yakima, Washington, on March 16 after melted snow and rain swelled the creek’s water levels.

The flooding caused road closures and at least one neighborhood was evacuated, according to reports.

The area remained under a flood advisory from the National Weather Service at the time of writing, and more rain was expected. Credit: YouTube/Steven Mack via Storyful
