Flood Warning in Effect for Skokomish River

The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for the Skokomish River which will be in effect until Friday evening. According to forecasters, the Skokomish River basin received 4 to 5 inches of rain in the last 24 hours which quickly drove the river above flood stage. Rain showers will continue but the heaviest is over and that should allow the river to crest and begin to recede.
