Cj Lockhart, a Spokane resident, made a trip to the Newport, Wash., area Tuesday to check on her daughter’s home along the flooded Pend Oreille River. Lockhart found a swing set almost completely underwater.

Spokane residents Tom Lowe and John Norisada drift along Davis Creek north of Newport on Tuesday, fishing for pike and bass. They said it was their first time fishing that part of the creek, which is normally 10 feet wide.
