A train of storms will pound the northwestern United States with flooding, dangerous surf and hurricane-force winds into early next week. The most severe impacts will be felt from southwestern British Columbia through western Washington and Oregon and into northern California as several Pacific storms barrel onshore through Tuesday. Residents in and around these areas should be aware of the threat for urban and coastal flooding,

mudslides, washed-out roads, power outages, property damage and travel disruptions during the onslaught. The first wave of heavy rain and wind will continue to press inland across the Northwest into Friday night. The bulk of the rain will focus along the Interstate 5 corridor from Seattle to Redding, California. FULL REPORT
