Bothell-Kenmore Reporter guest photographer Eric Allan was out and about in the storm on Sunday and caught these images in Bothell:
• The parking lot at the Residence Inn at the North Creek Business Park was filled with about three inches of water.
• 120th Avenue Northeast was completely covered with water just north of Northeast 195th Street.
• 120th Avenue Northeast was closed off at Northeast 195th Street, forcing cars to detour to North Creek Parkway. It has since been reopened.
• A planting strip creates a small island in the Residence Inn parking lot.
• Swollen Sammamish Slough at Bothell Landing.
• The amphitheater at the Park at Bothell Landing was filled with just under three feet of water overflowing from the slough.
• Cars kick up a big wake charging through standing water along North Creek Parkway.
• A city of Bothell mobile pumping station pumps water out of a clogged storm drain along 228th Street Southeast at the bridge over North Creek just east of Fitzgerald Road. Earlier in the day, water had covered the entire road prompting the city to send a crew to clear the drain.
• North Creek spreads out past its banks into a large field near 228th Street Southeast. The creek normally runs from right to left and the area in the distance is dry.
• A Snohomish County Public Works crew works to clear clogged storm drains along 39th Avenue Southeast just east of Bothell. The backed up drains sent a river of water down the road, digging out gravel and spreading it across the driving lane.
• A vehicle drives through the flooded intersection at 35th Avenue Southeast and 240th Street Southeast in the North Creek Business Park.
• Water rises to curb level along 120th Avenue Northeast in the North Creek Business Park.
