Heavy rain tapered off Tuesday in western Washington after causing severe flooding that killed at least one person and stranded others who had to be rescued by police and the National Guard. Floodwaters threatened nearly 300 homes and cabins after the Cowlitz River burst its banks, said Deputy Stacy Brown of the Lewis County sheriff's office. Gov. Chris Gregoire declared a state of emergency for 18 counties, authorizing the National Guard and the state Emergency Management Division to offer assistance. The rainstorms were propelled by air currents from Hawaii in a pattern called the Pineapple Express, the Weather Service said.
Mount Rainier National Park measured more than 10 inches of rain in 24 hours. Seattle-Tacoma International Airport recorded nearly 4 inches.
