Flooding issues in King County
There have been reports of high levels of rain in the mountains this week that could result in flooding for the region’s rivers and streams. According to the National Weather Service in Seattle, a flood warning is in effect for western Washington rivers: http://forecast.weather.gov/wwamap/wwatxtget.php?cwa=sew&wwa=flood warning; King County’s website lists additional flood warnings and alerts for King County rivers including the Cedar, Snoqualmie, and Green Rivers: www.kingcounty.gov/environment/waterandland/flooding/warning-system.
There are also news reports that a flood watch is in effect from Tuesday morning to Thursday afternoon for all mountain-fed rivers in Western Washington: www.komonews.com/news/Flood-Watches-posted-as-heavy-rain-threatens-Cascades-this-week-139765223.html.
There are a number of ways you can stay informed and prepare for flooding and other inclement weather.
King County has a website where you can sign up for flood alerts and analyze real-time flood conditions for King County’s rivers and roads; look up important phone numbers and other resources; check sandbagging distribution locations in King County; and even access an interactive map for King County’s road closures due to water over the roadway or flood damage:
Please remember to check weather reports, be prepared, and stay safe.
