Other areas of Seattle were also underwater; residents in South Park were dealing with flooding yesterday with heavy rain and high tides creating hazardous conditions and damage to homes and businesses.

The National Weather Service in Seattle says there have been some reports of more flooding today, but with less damage than Tuesday’s high tide. NWS says they see calmer weather for the next week.
