What can I do?Get prepared.
See tips on our Winter Weather page.
Park your car. Public Works crews will be out plowing and sanding to keep primary routes open, but the fewer drivers on the road the better. It also makes it easier for emergency responders to get help to those who need it most.
Plan to stay home. The snow is likely to stick around. Give yourself a break from dangerous conditions.
Prepare to be without electricity. Snow and wind may lead to power outages. Be ready. Update your emergency kit with food, water, flashlight, matches and blankets. Also make sure cell phones are charged before the storm. If you have an emergency heating source, such as a fireplace or space heater, make sure you have proper ventilation
To report power outages:
- Puget Sound Energy - 1-888-225-5773
- Snohomish County PUD - 425-783-1001 or 1-877-783-1001
- Do not call 911 to report power outages.
Be safe. The weather headed this way has the potential to create terrible road conditions and power outages. Officials ask that you take steps to prepare now. Better to be safe than sorry. When each of us is prepared, our whole community is prepared.
