Heavy rain on Nov. 19 flooded SE intersections


by: SUBMITTED - Deep puddles abound in Sellwood areaA BEE reader, Willa Grund, sent us this photo that afternoon to illustrate the point, as did Nicole Howe a bit later (inset).

“This car was stuck today on S.E. 28th near the Eastmoreland Golf Course,” said Willa. “Firefighters were there, trying to help the stranded motorists, and clear the gigantic puddle.”

At 4 pm that afternoon, our 24 hour rain measurement at THE BEE’s Westmoreland office was 2.10 inches – making it the wettest day of the year as of that date; another 1.44 inches fell on the following day, for a two-day total of over 3-1/2 inches.
