24-Hour Hotline No Longer Operating

As conditions continue to improve in areas hardest hit by recent snowstorms, King County’s 24-hour assistance call center is no longer operating.

If you have a concern about street access, please call the Road Services Division’s 24-hour hotline at 206-477-8100. If you need help with a personal or family crisis, please call the Crisis Connections hotline at 866-427-4747. As always, in an emergency, call 9-1-1.

Landslide Hazards

The threat of landslides for Western Washington lowlands below 1,500 feet continues through Sunday.

Precipitation combined with melting snow has saturated the soil, and has increased the threat for landslides at elevations below 1,500 feet. The threat will decrease Sunday through Monday as drier, cooler air moves into our area.

For more information about current landslide conditions, check the U.S. Geological Survey’s recent conditions for the Seattle area.

For more information about landslide hazards, the Washington State Department of Natural Resources has more information about how to recognize and respond to landslides.

Looking Ahead

King County transportation and emergency management staff will continue to monitor conditions for the week ahead.
