Seeing Amazing Yakima River Levels at West Richland Bridge
The National Weather Service (NWS) says Monday and Tuesday, June 13-14, should be the high-water marks for Yakima River levels.
West Richland PD takes amazing images of high water levels.
Late Sunday evening, the West Richland Police Department was checking water levels at the Yakima River Bridge and saw the Gateway Park trail that runs under the bridge leading into West Richland was completely submerged by fast-moving water.
The NWS says to expect some flooding to be expected at the West Richland Golf Course, the RV Park, and Kingston, Hyde, and Jones Roads. The water is expected to begin to recede noticeably by Wednesday.
But until then, the Gateway Park trail is closed due to dangerous conditions. These pictures capture the eerie-looking effects of the water, which is only a few feet underneath the bridge itself.
