Sunday’s Heavy Rain May Mean High Creek, Local Flooding

Johnson Creek High Water

Heavy rain is expected to fall in the Portland area on Sunday. The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement, stating that 1 to 3 inches of rain is predicted for Sunday. The statement also says that local streams may flood as well as some localized flooding from leaf-clogged drains.

Johnson Creek may potentially run high or possibly flood. Anyone near the creek should use caution and particularly stay away from the stone liners on the creek bank. The creek can flow swiftly and anyone in the water could become trapped in submerged logs.

On June 2, 2010, a 15-year boy drowned after jumping in Johnson Creek at the concrete dam and spillway at Tideman Johnson Park, OregonLive reported.

Both City of Milwaukie and City of Portland have sand bag resources available for the public.
