Crews have made progress to clear debris and re-open areas of Olympic National Park, following a windstorm that downed numerous trees and closed roads and campgrounds on Saturday.
Roads and facilities have re-opened at Staircase, Deer Park, Hurricane Ridge, Elwha, Sol Duc, Lake Crescent, and Queets.
Crews continue to assess hazards and clear debris in the Hoh Rain Forest, Kalaloch, Mora, Ozette, and Quinault areas of the park.
Rangers hope to open the Hoh Valley Road, Hoh Campground, Ozette Campground, and Kalaloch Campground by tomorrow afternoon.
Graves Creek Campground, the North Fork trailhead, and Mora Campground may remain closed for additional days.
Visitors are urged to use caution when traveling through the park, obey posted closures and watch for debris, workers, equipment and traffic control devices.
Further information about park roads and facilities will be released once it is available.
