Many parts of King County flood every year, including areas that have no history of floods. Flooding most commonly occurs from November through February during periods of heavy rainfall. Preparing in advance may save you time and reduce risk to your family and property.
One of the most important things that residents can do to help prevent flooding is to ensure storm drains remain clear in their neighborhoods. Clearing leaves and debris from storm drains will reduce the risk of drainage problems.
