Floodwaters have begun to fall as the rains have slacked off a bit. The Siletz River is no longer at flood stage and the Alsea River at Tidewater, as you can see, has just fallen below flood stage itself. The forecast is for continued light rain which should give our watersheds time to empty out a little bit. But needless to say the ground is very soggy and slippery. A very serious slip-and-fall hazard is everywhere out there.
