Potential flooding is possible in several areas of Oregon, including here in Lane County. Many rivers are running high due to snow melting in the higher elevations, plus there is a forecast for moderate to heavy rain this weekend. Landslides and debris flows are also possible during this time.
If you are in an area below a steep slope, in a canyon or near its mouth, be alert for updated flood warnings in your area. If you are in an area prone to flooding be prepared to take action should flooding develop.

The McKenzie and some of the local creeks are still pretty high here and we've been getting more rain today. Luckily we weren't hit as hard as some of the rest of the Northwest. Currently, our area does not have any flood or storm warnings. There was a recent report of the McKenzie River near Walterville creating at 13.69 feet. Flood stage is 14 feet.
