Storm brings record rainfall to Bellingham, flooding on Nooksack

A Whatcom County Public Works front loader drives through floodwaters on Slater Road, west of the Nooksack River bridge, Monday morning, Feb. 16, 2016, after record-breaking heavy rain caused the river to overflow and the county to close the road. A President’s Day storm brought record rainfall to Bellingham and sent the Nooksack River overflowing in some areas of Whatcom County, closing Slater Road near the bridge.
