Oregon flooding pools in skatepark and engulfs parking lots

Flooding in Oregon has turned a local skatepark into a swimming pool and a parking lot is now a part of the Willamette River, which is seen flowing in the background as a couple takes photos.

The filmer took the footage yesterday (April 10) and said the Willamette River had nearly doubled in width, caused by heavy rain across northwest Oregon.

According to local news reports the flood warning is in effect throughout the weekend for towns along the entire length of the Willamette valley.
