SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. --- A series of road closures due to washouts led Spokane County leaders to declare a state of emergency.
Warmer temperatures, combined with continuing rain showers, have been flooding rivers across the area.
An emergency declaration will allow the Public Works Department to acquire emergency supplies and equipment to mitigate flood damage.
Officials said the southwest and northern quadrants of the county were the most impacted as of Wednesday night.
