• Region hit by storm causing crashing waves, some areas flooded


    After a storm hit the region overnight, powerful waves came crashing onto shores, which left some areas flooded.


    Storm warnings were issued for Western Washington on Sunday and are in effect until Monday. They included warnings high winds, rain and more snow in the mountains.


    Chopper 7 flew over Des Moines, where high tides hit a marina and waves crashed into a home along the waterfront.

    The waves crashed above the house, causing damage to the home.


    As waves continued to hit the waterfront, a large jam of logs slammed into the seawall.

    "I looked out the window and saw all kinds of pieces of wood and debris and boats floating by," said Des Moines waterfront resident Shaun Svenson, "and I knew something bad at the beach was happening at that point."


    Des Moines resident Mark Brubaker repoted that his -- and all his neighbors' -- yards were flooded when he looked out his window Monday morning. "You can hear the dishes falling in the cupboards," he said. "It can jolt you out of bed pretty easily!"

    KIRO 7 Eyewitness News reporter Jeff Dubois was at Alki where Elliott Bay waters were pushed up over the edge, and caused flooding.


    Parts of a marina were flooded out in Thurston County's Boston Harbor, where high winds from the storm also toppled trees.


    Officials with the Seattle Parks Department told KIRO 7 they are expecting another high tidal surge Tuesday morning at 8 a.m.
