The state has seen record-breaking rains, flooding, and just downright bizarre weather. Of course, Washingtonians have taken a sec to record some of this so let’s take a look at just what people across the state have seen so far.
Here are the craziest pictures from Washington’s big storm.
To start let’s look at some data. Clearly, cities across the state were getting hit with some serious wind.

Further north, things weren’t much better. The wind actually tipped over a truck on the Deception Pass bridge which is absolutely terrifying.

We’ll keep our fingers crossed for calmer weather this week and period. Large portions of Washingtonians are still without power and if you’d like to see the extent you can click here. Stay safe out there and let’s all hope for a drier end to the month.
