Downpours cause flooding in downtown Ballard

Posted by Meghan Walker on September 30th, 2013

The heavy rains over the weekend caused some localized flooding in downtown Ballard. My Ballard reader Martin Penner sent us this photo of flooding caused when a manhole cover popped off on Ballard Ave. More heavy rains and high winds are expected through today, according to the National Weather Service.

Steve Snoey sent us this video of flooding in front of Ballard Blossom during the downpour on Saturday.
