I interrupt the Jade Festival reporting to bring you a special weather alert for early next week. It came in yesterday afternoon at 4:00 pm, but as most of you know, I’ve been a little busy. Here is the announcement:
The National Weather Service is predicting that extremely high levels of rainfall will occur early next week (see official forecast). This includes high winds and as much as 8-10 inches of rain. If this weather occurs as predicted there is a high probability that flooding, debris flows, and power outages will also occur throughout the county.
Please be alert to National Weather Service watches, warnings, and advisories. Be prepared to take actions necessary to protect yourself and your property.
This information should be disseminated to all levels of community and response organizations.
I will post more information as it becomes available in this post, but reporting will continue on the Jade Festival below for Day 2 of the Festival.
