Flooding causes major problems for people living in Forest Grove

FOREST GROVE, OR (KPTV) -

With flooded, muddy streets in the area, many people living in Forest Grove are finding it difficult to get around and it's also interrupting some peoples day-to-day activities.

FOX 12 spoke with one woman who said her house is surrounded by water and they are unable to use running water at all right now. That means no flushing toilets, no showers all because their system has been saturated by the muddy flood waters these past couple of days.

"I think we are just going to have to sit it out and wait, maybe go stay at a hotel for a little bit if it's really bad because, I mean, we have to take showers and stuff," said Erika Davis.

Also, flooding has canceled all after school activities for the Forest Grove school district for Tuesday night due to the flooding.
