NEAR YAKIMA, Wash- Some flooding has already started in the Yakima area.  At about 6:30am  morning Yakima Sheriff's deputies and West Valley firefighters responded to the 5000 block of north fork road near Tampico.  The north fork of the Ahtanum Creek had been pushed out of the water by a dam of ice.  Crews broke through the ice and the creek was able to flow normally again.  No homes were damaged.
