A year after destructive erosion, small town gets heavy protection from Skagit River
LYMAN, Wash. - The soggy season is definitely here in Western Washington. That means for many communities the threat of flooding returns. It was 12 months ago when houses in the small town of Lyman in Skagit County hung on the brink of disaster because of fast moving, high water. The Army Corps of Engineers says last November's flooding along the Skagit could have been much worse. This year, the Corps is able to take some preventative action to keep the town safe.
