The weekend storm triggered mudslides and flooding across the state, and road crews have been busy trying to put everything back together again. ODOT's Lou Torres says the big rain storm isn't quite as dramatic as 1996, but it definitely left its mark: “Certainly 1996 is the year that everyone remembers; where we had a lot of slides and a lot of flooding. We're not comparing this to 1996; however it's still pretty severe. Some of the coastal areas had 7, 8, 9 inches of rain over a two day period." The coast was affected in the most with a mudslide blocking Highway 6 near Tillamook. Closer to Central Oregon, a mudslide up on Mt. Hood on Highway 26 shutdown the road for a while.  And on Highway 20 east of Cascadia, a big slide closed the highway Monday. Torres says the rain not only caused some un-stable slopes throughout the coastal range,  it also lead to noticeable high water on the popular Highway 101 as well as other highways throughout Oregon.
