Pacific Flood, January 2009
On the evening of January 8, 2009, the White River surged over its banks flooding dozens of homes, apartments, and businesses in Pacific, Washington.

"We are not seeing any problems, nor do we anticipate any problems on the White. That is based on current projections. We are expecting in about three hours a new projection. It may be to release the waters but they don't seem to be needing to release any water that would provide any flooding to the city of Pacific" said a King County official as the waters were already pouring over the levy.

River flows set new records, and flooding reached homes that had not seen flood waters since before the construction of Mud Mountain Dam.
