Communities in northwest Washington are looking toward recovery Friday after a torrential storm brought inches of rain in just days and caused multiple rivers to flood, resulting in extensive damage. Images released from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) show just how devastating the floods were throughout the region. One of the images released from NASA on Nov. 16 shows extensive flooding all the way from Lynden to the west along the Nooksack River through Ferndale. The images also show a significant amount of topsoil being carried into Puget Sound. A product of yet another atmospheric river moving through the region, the roughly 4 inches of rain in some parts in just 24 hours broke numerous records, according to NASA.
