These type of storms aren’t that unusual in West Seattle, but they’re rare enough that we sometimes forget how powerful they can be.
So while you’re picking up branches and clearing storm drains, it’s also a good time to think about emergency preparation.
- Could you stay warm with no power in your house?
- Do you have enough food and water on-hand for a few days?
- Do you have a family disaster plan?
- How about an emergency supply kit?
There is some great advice about getting prepared on Seattle’s SNAP site (Seattle Neighborhoods Actively Prepare).
Use this storm as a reminder and be prepared for the next one!
