• Flooding expected in Skagit County October 29 & 30.

    October 29, 2021

    Flooding is expected to occur in Skagit County beginning early morning October 29 and continuing through October 30. The river crest is currently forecasted at around 30.9 feet in downtown Mount Vernon and 31.18 feet in Concrete. A flood watch has been issued by the national weather service.

    For updated river forecasts please visit www.skagitcounty.net/flood or call the River Level Hotline at 360-416-1404.

    Residents in Hamilton, Lyman, Concrete and other flood-prone areas should prepare to take action over the next 24 hours to protect their homes and families from floodwaters. If you have questions or are in need of sandbags and aren't sure where to go, please contact Skagit County Department of Emergency Management at 360-416-1850. 

    Skagitonians throughout the County should also expect water over low-lying roadways, particularly Swan Road, Whitmarsh Road (in Burlington), Martin Road and potentially Cape Horn. Practice turn around- don’t drown and do not drive through water over the roadway. It can be deeper and faster moving than anticipated and presents a risk to drivers.

    For more emergency information, sign up for the emergency information listserv, CodeRed Alerts or follow Skagit County on Twitter @SkagitGov. The River Level Hotline (36- 416-1404) and www.skagitcounty.net/flood are updated frequently during events with current conditions and can be resources for information as well.

    Stay safe & dry!
