BENTON CITY, WA- You have probably seen the pictures and videos by now, of all the dramatic flooding on the west side of the state.

Now our region is starting to see the full effect of that immense downpour. Neighbors at the Beach RV Park in Benton City told NBC Right Now they are happy to have enough time to get ahead of any flooding, before it happens.

People there remember flooding from back in 1996, which they consider to be far worse than current conditions. However, they are not taking any chances and have already started moving their homes out of harms way. 

"We are taking all the skirting off and all we gotta do now is unplug the water and sewer. We will move it, probably about 10 or 15 feet down that way," Douglas Dusbabek explained as he pointed inland.

Douglas says he loves living by the river because of the view and easy access to fishing. He also is not too worried about the rising water, unlike some of his family members.

"Since about 9:30 this morning, it was clear out to here at the end of the dock. Since then, it has came back up a couple of feet, everything is going to be washed out. There is normally a stump over there, and it's 12 feet tall," said Cody Sadliea who pointed to the stump underwater.

Thankfully, neighbors in this community continue to help each other out as the water levels rise, which are normally two feet lower than they are currently.

    With these temperatures outside, it is really starting to feel like summer. This means you might be getting the boat ready to take out on the water. In order to have fun in the sun, you'll want to make sure your boat is safe and your passengers will be too. Today we stopped by the 19th Annual Boat and RV show to get some tips from the Benton County Sheriffs and Coast Guard Auxiliary volunteers. They say you should take inventory of your boat to see if anything may have gotten lost ...More >>
