So while we have watched other states around the country dealing with their own weather issues we have one bearing down on us.
The head of the Marysville Department of Emergency Management sent us this the other day but we lost internet.
I have also added a lot of helpful link from their site. No matter what just please be careful and if you live in a slide prone area it may just be a good idea to evacuate for a while until the Snohomish County Dept of Emergency Management and Army Corps of Engineers can assess the situation.
The good news is that we finally have qualified accredited people running our emergency depts so hopefully we will never see the loss of life that we have under the last administration.
Increasing confidence that a very strong storm system could bring stronger winds and rainfall to the Western Washington region.
- Rain: Amounts comparable to today’s system – in addition to Storm #1 rainfall
- Wind: Very strong winds . . . possibly stronger than Storm #1
- Rivers: Additional rises on area rivers
- Possible power outages and tree damage
- Expect rises on area rivers and possible flooding. Potential for urban flooding and small stream impacts
- Increasing landslide risk Sunday
