Washington state motorists stranded after floods, mudslidesFri, 22 Aug 2014 10:44

Heavy rainfall in a wildfire-charred area of North Central Washington state triggered flash flooding and mudslides that stranded motorists and closed highways, a forecaster said on Friday. Vehicles were trapped in debris-laden water at about 8 p.m. PDT Thursday (0300 GMT Friday) in Okanogan County, and mud and rocks carried by moving water blocked State Highway 20, said National Weather Service meteorologist Stephen Corfidi. Heavy rain started early Thursday afternoon in North Central Washington state, which has been burned by destructive wildfires.
