Storms can knock out power for extended periods. Residents should plan for such outages, assemble an emergency preparedness kit and get involved with your community and emergency response training.

Report outages at (206) 684-3000.

Always stay away from downed power lines. Never use a barbecue grill or portable generator indoors because they will generate deadly carbon monoxide.
