KAHLOTUS, Wash.-- One of the biggest weather-related problems Tuesday was southwest of Spokane near the town of Kahlotus.

Mud and rock slides have a highway shut down for a second day and people on a farm there are still picking up the pieces after being nearly wiped out with Sunday’s storm.

Damage to Knodel and Sun Farm Inc. is estimated at least $10,000.

The farm's owner says Monday there was two to three feet of standing water throughout his property. He says several inches of ran hit Sunday night, overflowing nearby ditches.

Nearly 40 volunteers from the nearby town of Lind turned out to help the clean up process.

Tuesday crews were working out emptying the farm's shop and part of the family's home. The next step is sorting through what could be salvageable.

The farm owner says he's worked on the land the majority of his life and he's never seen a storm as bad as the one that hit Sunday.
