Lots of traffic quickly backed up due to an accident on the I-5 Skagit River Bridge that closed traffic in both directions. At the time of the accident, the only way to get from Burlington to Mount Vernon was the Burlington Blvd./Riverside Dr. bridge. The Division Street bridge between downtown Mount Vernon and Westside Mount Vernon was closed due to the flooding. Highway 20 was closed east of Burlington and Hwy. 9 was closed north of Clear Lake. Lots of patience required. Thankfully, only minor injuries.

To the disappointment of Tulip Festival tourists, many of the tulip fields have had their blooms cut off. But there's a good reason!
