9/30 Stormy weather, Skagit shores, Oly shores

Saturday's rain set records across Western Washington, from Olympia to Bellingham. And the National Weather Service says the rain isn't over yet. Record rainfall of 1.71 inches fell was recorded at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Saturday. The weather service says that is more than double the old record of 0.83 of an inch set in 1948. A record rainfall of 2.93 inches was set in Olympia, breaking the old record of 0.82 set in 1971. Rain sets records across Western Washington And: West Coast storm knocks out power on B.C.

Skagit County and several towns and cities within the county are in the process of updating their Shoreline Master Plans, the first complete update since the Shoreline Management Act was established in 1972. The act protects Washington shorelines with rules for development to help minimize environmental damage while maintaining public land and water rights. State shoreline includes land within 200 feet of the high-water mark of Puget Sound, rivers, streams, lakes of more than 20 acres and associated floodplains, wetlands and river deltas. Kimberly Cauvel reports.  Shoreline plans get first updates in 40 years

After more than three years of public process, the city of Olympia is poised to finish its work on the Shoreline Master Program. The Olympia City Council will consider Tuesday whether to approve its proposal for the state-mandated plan and transmit it to the state Department of Ecology for final approval, which could take months.
