Get Prepared for Tonight’s Major Wind Storm

With one wind and rain storm down and another due to strike tonight, now is a good time to check those storm drains near your home or place of business. If the drain is covered with leaves, please take a moment to rake it clear to prevent flooding. The weather service predicts tonight’s storm could bring 1-3 inches of rain along with wind gusts reaching 60 miles per hour. That much rain could cause local flooding in neighborhoods if drains are clogged. Please consider adopting a drain near your home. Seattle Public Utilities will supply all the equipment to help you keep your drain clear.
