As for streams and rivers here in Clark County, we'll be watching the Washougal, Salmon Creek and Lewis Rivers as they tend to be the first ones to exhibit any signs of flooding in our local area. The National River Forecast Center tracks a number of river levels and can be checked online at anytime.
So, as the snow melts and the face of the hazard changes to our familiar friend, consider what you can do to remain prepared:
- Check the storm drains on your street for any blockages that could be easily removed
- Keep a mindful eye on the weather, dressing properly in case you are stuck outside for longer than you anticipate.
- If you encounter high water, DO NOT try to drive through it.
