Storm brings flood threat to western Oregon

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Heavy winds and widespread rains are causing scattered problems in southwestern and coastal Oregon, and the weather forecasts call for "a burst of rain" that could cause flooding up and down the western edge of the state.

Highway crews cleared trees from two highways Tuesday, and rocks and debris from two more.

Although the most intense weather of the fall has been along the south and central coasts, and in the southwest part of the state, the weather service expects rains that could cause flooding Wednesday along the north coast, inland valleys and the Cascade Range because the ground is already saturated.

The weather service said it doesn't expect flooding east of the Cascades and canceled a watch for the Klamath Basin.
