Rain & Windy Conditions to Continue

MONTESANO, Wash. – Windy conditions will continue into Saturday morning. Winds will be 20-25 mph sustained and could gust to 35-45 mph along the coast.

During the next few days, steady rain will continue to fall. Grays Harbor County Emergency Management is reminding all citizens that high wind gusts along with rain saturated grounds are indicators for possible power outages from fallen trees, tree limbs and power lines. DO NOT venture near downed tree limbs or power lines. DO NOT USE PORTABLE GENERATORS INDOORS FOR ANY REASON!! There have been numerous incidents of Carbon Monoxide poisoning in the County in the last few weeks due to the faulty use of portable generators being used indoors.

All rivers in the County will run higher than normal, especially during high tide in the Harbor. No rivers are projected to flood at this time. A few low lying roads remain closed by County Road Crews due to water over the surface.

DO NOT drive over flooded roadways. Turn Around, Don’t Drown!
