October is Flood Awareness Month in King County
As Chair of the King County Flood Control District Executive Committee, I recently took part in a press conference stressing the need for County residents to be prepared ahead of time for possible floods.
We never really know when a serious flood may hit and now more than ever it is important we take the necessary steps well ahead of time to make sure we are prepared.
One step is to prepare a properly outfitted emergency preparedness kit. It’s one of the most basic and important tools that everyone should have at home. Assembling basic items: flashlight, batteries, a portable radio, non-perishable food, and drinking water can make a potentially hectic and frightening experience a little less so.
King County also offers everyone free access to KC Flood Alerts, an automated system that allows subscribers to receive customized alerts of potential flooding for any or all of King County’s six major river systems.
Find the KC Flood Alerts link at www.kingcounty.gov/flood
This website also provides additional valuable information about river levels and road conditions, plus weather reports and other critical links.
