Torrential rains and howling winds battered the northwest part of the country over the weekend.
Storms swept across most of Washington state and Portland, Ore., bringing record-breaking rainfall.
Some areas got a month's worth of rain in just two days making it the region's wettest September on record.
Flooding turned streets into rivers and fallen trees blocked streets and sidewalks. Winds up to 70 mph ripped power lines leaving thousands in the dark.
Forecasters said a second storm is expected to hit the region again today.
