SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Flooding forced evacuations in Washington state this weekend. 

The area near the border with Canada is still dealing with the aftermath of flooding from a storm just a couple of weeks ago. 

"The amount of water that was just sitting at the height of the railroad tracks — I  mean if you go outside, it's literally eye-height from here. And so once that started coming over, it just flowed, flowed." 

The flooding earlier this month left damage as high as $50 million and officials say the levee system could be vulnerable in the next storm event.
