Another ‘atmospheric river’ on the way as Nooksack River floods Whatcom cities again

The Bellingham Herald

Flood-ravaged communities of western Whatcom County braced for even more rain this week as another “atmospheric river” — the fifth such storm this month — was poised to drop another multi-day deluge. Both Everson and Sumas saw floodwaters again as the Nooksack River poured over its banks Sunday, Nov. 28, and reached Sumas on Monday, Nov. 29, according to officials in the two cities that were hardest-hit by flooding earlier in November. And flooding could worsen as heavy rain is forecast across Western Washington from Monday night, Nov. 29, through Wednesday, Dec. 1.
