Dallas, Oregon Severe Flooding.

Oregon rain has turned into a severe case of flooding for Dallas, Oregon. The Rickreall Creek which runs all throughout Dallas is severely flooding; damaging homes, parks, streets, and businesses. City crews are working everywhere in the city which needs assistance. In December of 2007, Dallas was hit with an even bigger flood. The 2007 flood was powerful enough to sweep homes away. Park officials say the way it is raining now, and how high the river is getting, the 2012 year could easily be much worse than the flood of 2007. Citizens are stocking up on supplies for power outages, and preparing with sandbags to protect their homes from the flood waters. Dallas is expected to get more heavy rain throughout Thursday night, and all the way into Sunday. FOR MORE PICTURES, VISIT:
