What do I do if my house floods?


  • Turn off electricity, gas, and electricity only if it is safe to do so without stepping in water.
  • Evacuate the premise to a safe location with everyone who is at home including pets. If you need emergency medical assistance or are trapped in your location, dial 911.
  • Tune into local media stations or NOAA Weather Radio for warnings, possible evacuations, and up-to-date information.
  • If you are in need of temporary sheltering, call the Red Cross at 206-323-2345.
  • Call you insurance company – or landlord – to determine next steps.
