FORKS — Mora Road in Olympic National Park is closed at the Mora Ranger Station due to severe flooding.

There is no vehicle access to Rialto Beach, according to the park.

Upper Hoh Road also is closed at the park boundary due to a clogged culvert that the park’s road crew is working to clear.

According to the National Weather Service, heavy rain is expected to continue through Tuesday night, causing rivers to rise and flooding to continue. The threat of landslides also will increase.

Showers are expected Wednesday, with rivers cresting and receding. The threat of landslides is also expected to diminish.

Colder conditions might develop later this week.

Before planning a visit to the park or for more information, call 360-565-3131 or visit the park website at nps.gov/olym/planyourvisit.
