A series of intense, massive storms full of rain and wind struck the region this week, and Burien has suffered – with a mudslide that destroyed a home, water over numerous roadways, overflowing retention ponds, downed trees, damaged homes, power outages, roads littered with branches – and much, much more. Scott Schaefer put his boots on, went out and took these photos on Wednesday, Dec. 9 – before the next storm hits sometime Thursday (click images to see larger versions/slideshow):

A stormwater retention pond at the intersection of 6th Ave SW and SW 142nd has overflowed into the roadway.

Part of the roof collapsed at HiLine Lanes Tuesday night, and according to Manager Leah Anduin: “Nothing spectacular to report Scott. Just our usual roof issues (we were already looking for a new roof this year) combined with the storm….& some of the roof broke away in the bar. You can’t see it…& there is a roofer coming today.”
Usually this retention pond on SW 128th is empty. Today it was nearly full, as well as hosting several ducks.
On Tuesday night, there was water over the roadway at SW 172nd in Three Tree Point.
