What to do if you’re stranded in a flood zone
A new flood zone created in Washington state, which extends from Tacoma to Vancouver, was created to better protect homes and businesses from rising sea levels.
A new Flood Zone was created in Washougal in Washington State, which includes the Seattle region, to better ensure homes and business owners are protected from rising seas.
The flood zone will include Seattle, Tacoma, Tacoma-Bellevue, Seattle-Beloit, King County, and Snohomish counties.
Residents and businesses are not allowed to use any public or private property in the flood zone.
It also includes some residential areas and businesses that are not considered flood zones, including some parks and recreational areas.
The zone is a public safety measure, but the public has the right to request to use their property for private purposes.
It does not allow for any private construction of any structures in the zone.
Some businesses in the area may be affected by the flood.
“We’re not really anticipating the impact that we have in terms of flood control on the businesses,” said Doug Johnson, a spokesperson for the Washington Department of Transportation.
He said the state has asked for a temporary flood watch, but so far the request has been denied.
He added, however, that it is expected to be lifted at some point this week.
“There is a lot of infrastructure along the water and we’re going to be working very closely with the City of Tacoma to get the waters out of the way so that we can move our infrastructure,” he said.
The storm has caused damage to about 3,000 homes and more than $30 million in damage.
The state’s Office of Emergency Management said in a press release that the storm will bring more frequent flooding, with the number of flash flooding reports rising to about 1,500 a day.
Flooding is especially dangerous in areas with high flood risk, such as in areas in Seattle.
According to a report by the U.S. National Weather Service, Washington is on track for its third consecutive year of record rainfall.
There have been more than 6 inches of rain since the start of August.
“In this current climate, we’re experiencing unprecedented flooding and we’ve been on the edge of a crisis,” said Governor Jay Inslee in a statement.
“The Washington state government and our state agencies are prepared to protect our people, businesses and infrastructure, and we will work together to do so.
I urge all Washington residents to remain vigilant and stay safe during this historic event.”
The governor said that the federal government is also working to assist the state.
“Federal assistance will be provided as necessary, including through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in its efforts to provide resources and assistance to Washington state and its affected communities,” he wrote.
“These federal assistance efforts will begin as soon as the storm passes.
Federal assistance is also being provided through the state and local governments to assist with reconstruction efforts and recovery.”
