Leaves Blowing

In the event of heavy winds, please watch for downed trees and power lines, debris and water over roadways, and be prepared for potential power outages. Clear storm drains of leaves and debris to help prevent localized flooding. Click here for a list of current weather-related road closures.

Stay Informed

Stay informed on weather in our area by following local media outlets and organizations like the National Weather Service.

Sign up for emergency alerts, a regional notification system, and follow City of Bothell's Facebook and Twitter pages for updates. Twitter is often the most timely source for information. 

Be Prepared

The best thing you can do to keep your family safe before, during and after a winter storm or emergency is be prepared. Here are a few tips:

Safety Tips

  • Have a disaster kit ready with two weeks' worth of food, water and supplies for everyone in your home.
  • Stay away from downed power lines and sagging trees with broken limbs.
  • Never use gas ovens, gas ranges, barbecues or propane heaters for indoor heating as they can cause carbon monoxide poisoning. 
  • Operate generators outside, a safe distance away from your home. Never run generators in your garage, even with the door open.
  • Stay informed. Follow updates from National Weather Service and other local outlets. 

To report local power outages, contact your utility provider. Do not call 911 to report a power outage.
