High Wind Warning

Statement as of 12:39 PM PDT on October 18, 2017


... High Wind Warning remains in effect for the northwest interior
until 9 PM PDT this evening...

* wind... southerly 20 to 35 mph with gusts as high as 55 mph. So
far, Lopez Island had a gust of 53 mph.

* Some affected locations... Everett, Port Townsend, Whidbey
Island, Anacortes, the San Juan Islands, and Bellingham.

* Timing... wind speeds will peak by 5 PM PDT before diminishing
this evening.

* Impacts... winds this strong can topple weakened trees, snap tree
limbs, and cause power outages. This will be the first event of
this magnitude this season. These early season events tend to
cause more damage and power outages than winds with similar
speeds occurring later in the season.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Loose outdoor objects or light-weight furniture should be secured
before damaging winds arrive. If the power GOES out, avoid the
risk of Carbon monoxide poisoning by keeping portable generators
and barbecue drills outdoors.
