There were also issues on East Marine View Drive.

Everett Fire crews were responding to multiple service calls relating to flooding.

As of 8 PM no reports of serious injury.

Authorities ask you not to drive thru flooded areas as there is no way to determine if the roadway under the water has been damaged, a sinkhole developed, etc.

The City monitors the CSOs in real time.

The combined sewer overflows for the City of Everett were working at capacity for a time Monday night.
