The Washington State Department of Transportation has closed sections of several highways in Spokane, Lincoln, Adams and Whitman County due to large amounts of water over the roadway. Several others could be closed at any time, according to the Washington State Patrol.

• Highway 231 is closed from between Sprague and Reardan.

• Highway 23 is closed between Sprague and St. John.

• There is water over Highway 23 between Sprague and Harrington, but that section of highway is still open.

• Water has undercut Highway 27 five miles south of Oakesdale. Part of the northbound lane has washed away but the highway is still open, according to WSP.
