Without yet seeing the full extent of flood conditions, as we wait for the snow-pack to begin melting, we are already beginning to see high water in our local rivers and streams. Always remember to be cautious in these conditions, and never cross water that is flowing over a roadway.

This year brings us similar conditions to what we saw in 1996, which was devastating to our entire region. It is advised to be prepared both at work and at home for harsh weather conditions, flooding, and power outages during this season.

You can check your local road conditions by visiting our region’s sub-page on the Washington State Transportation Department website.
