City Launches New Winter Storm Information Webpage

Jan 15, 2020 - With real winter weather definitely here again, it's a good time to get prepared with the essentials. To help all Islanders prepare, the City has consolidated all the storm information that residents need into one handy location that will be updated during storm events.
 
Our new Winter Storm Ready webpage provides all of the City's plow routes, safety tips, known road closures, as well as links to PSE's power outage map, the City's online service request portal, landslide information, and more. As we prepare for the next round of winter weather, remember to make sure you have:
  • Batteries for your flashlights
  • Backup power for your cellphone
  • Emergency kits for car and house
  • A plan in place if you can't get home due to weather
Don't forget to make sure your car's gas tank is always at least half-full. And please try to park vehicles well off the side of major plow routes to help our plow drivers.

Visit our new winter storm webpage today for more information; on the page, residents can also sign up for a daily newsletter summarizing key road closures and other storm information. 

The City will continue to post frequent updates about storms on its many social media outlets (such as Facebook, Twitter, Nextdoor), and will publish news releases about major storm impacts on the main City homepage.
