FEDERAL WAY ELLISFORDE – The Ellisforde Bridge Road is closed temporarily because of fallen trees.
The trees were toppled during a storm that rolled through the Okanogan Valley early this afternoon, pounding the area with rain, wind and lightning.
Officials are checking on reports of new lightning-caused fires near Winthrop. Another fire was reported in the Highlands above Tonasket.
