Get ready: Fall storm expected this weekend (Oct. 15-16)

The weather forecast doesn’t look pretty. Heavy wind and rain is coming our way the weekend of Oct. 15, and now is the time to sign up for King County’s travel alerts, whether you ride Metro, the Water Taxi, or drive on King County roads, or want to receive regional emergency updates.

Water Taxi captains are monitoring wind conditions at shoreside facilities as well as on the water. If wave and wind conditions are determined to not be safe for travel, crews will suspend water taxi service.

Regional updates will be posted on the King County Emergency blog.

The combination of wind and rainfall increases the possibility of clogged storm drains and urban flooding. Sudden bursts of rainfall can temporarily make roads impassable. King County’s My Commute page is a key resource for monitoring the status of closed county roads. Stay up to date with river flooding information by visiting
