Transcript for Deadly Storms Hit West Coast With High Winds and Mudslides
Let's turn to the deadly string of storms that are pummeling the west coast. With rains, winds and mudslides. Sam champion warned us about it yesterday. It's been a difficult 24 hours, with 3 storms stacked up in the northwest. One already in. Another one about to move in today. This second low will push the heaviest rain south from san francisco. These are high-elevation winds, 114 miles per hour. The top rains have been seven to nine inches of rain. In seattle, all the way to portland, there's been three to four inches of rain. That's two to three days of incredibly bad weather. And two more days of bad weather coming. Torrential downpours in the pacific northwest have brought nearly eight inches of rain since sunday. Wind toppled trees and knocked out power to over 50,000 residents. Members of seaside, oregon's, fire department had to run for cover, when their vehicle was hit by a falling tree. They all ran. Reporter: Another near-miss in south bend, washington. A state trooper narrowly escapes a patrol car when a tree comes down on highway 101, igniting the vehicle in a burst of flames. Towned power lines are everywhere. And residents are getting warning of potential flash flooding. The next couple days, the water will be coming up fast. We have to be aware of that. Don't be around the water for now. Most of the country will see dry, warm weather. The possibility of 77 and temperatures like dallas, and maybe 60 degrees in chicagoland. Look at the northwest, if you're traveling over the next couple of days. This doesn't leave. It's anywhere from seattle to san francisco. There's pretty large airports in the middle of that. The ice, the wind, the rain, the snow, still there. Now, back to the desk. Sam, thank you so much.
