Boy did that escalate in a hurry...

| No Comments

Looks like I am at the farm for a few days.  From an email from the County Department of Emergency Management:

Stay off the Roads – Much of Whatcom County is isolated, unnecessary driving can impede emergency responders and driving around “Road Closed” signs is a traffic offense.

Significant Issues:

    • The Emergency Operations Center has been activated
    • Everson, Sumas, Deming and Maple Falls are all isolated.
    • The Nooksack River is continuing to flood and is expected to through the day.
    • Over 30 Whatcom County roads are posted closed, and many others have water over the road but have not yet been posted.
    • Mount Baker Highway near Valley Highway is closed in both directions due to a landslide.
    • Badger Road is closed, SR-9 and SR-20 is closed due to water over road.
    • Between 50 and 70 water rescues have occurred.
    • Anyone living in known flood areas or low lying areas should be prepared to shelter in place unless there is a life safety issue.
    • Soils are saturated, and we have had multiple landslides overnight, including one into a house.
    • Weather conditions are not expected to improve significantly over the next 8 hours, and there will be additional flooding, landslides, and road closures.
    • High winds have started and power outages are reported across Whatcom County.
    • Anyone who believes that they are in danger should call 911. To report non-emergency impacts please leave a message at 

WA State now has 77,099 customers without power.
