Yes, it rains in Seattle, but it doesn't normally rain like THIS in Seattle. The most rainfall in Seattle's recorded history fell during a 32 hour period on Sunday/Monday. These rains followed the snow storm on Saturday. The Pineapple Express weather pattern was credited with the 5+ inches of rainfall in the northern neighborhoods of Seattle which overflowed creeks and sewers, flooding homes and causing erosion, landslides and street and freeway closures. The southern neighborhoods and SEATAC received slightly less rain. All of the Pacific Northwest was very hard hit by the storm. I'm wishing everyone affected by the storm a speedy recovery and clean up with as few snags as possible in recovering and replacing what has been damaged and lost.
