Accuweather posted: Powerful storms to hammer West Coast, disrupt holiday travel into next week
Expect more storms with heavy rain, heavy mountain snow and rough seas to lash the West Coast of the United States into Christmas Day.
The main focus of the storms has been and will continue to be the Northwest into this weekend.
The cumulative effect of the storm train from Washington to Northern California will keep the risk of mudslides and flash flooding elevated, while the potential for avalanches in the Cascades and Olympics continues.
Toledo School District update:
Toledo Schools will be on regular schedule (Wednesday) and then dismiss for the holiday. We'll return on January 3 on regular schedule.

Commissioner of Public Lands Hilary Franz announced:
(Tuesday) along with California Natural Resources Secretary John Laird and British Columbia Minister of Forests Doug Donaldson, we pledged to share information and work jointly to improve forest resilience and better understand how forests are responding to climatic changes.

This agreement lays the groundwork for quick and effective solutions that will make all of our communities, lands and waters more resilient in the face of a changing climate. bit.ly/MOUTemperateForests
Washington State Patrol: Reflecting On Fatal Amtrak Derailment One Year Ago
Exactly one year ago (Tuesday), our lives as a community were changed forever. Below is the letter we wrote to all those affected by the Amtrak train derailment on the day I-5 was re-opened.

It is heartbreaking when a major, and especially fatal, incident like this occurs. Please know that our hearts ache with you and we are keeping you in our thoughts. We would also like to extend our gratitude to all the first responders, partner agencies, and citizens who immediately jumped into action."
