It still would be a good idea to secure anything outside your home that could be blown about by the wind, and make sure your flashlights are in good working order, just in case. Take time to top off your car with gas on the way home from work, and charge up your cell phone. It’s always good practice to shut off your computer at night. And with the possibility of power outages still on the table, running a back up of your computer, if it has been a while, would be worthwhile as well.
In case you need the contact information for your local utility provider(s) over the next few days, Windermere Mercer Island has put together a handy list of Seattle Region utilities. Click here to print out the list.
We hope the wind won’t be as powerful as originally speculated, but being prepared is always helpful. Please take care as the weekend approaches, and be on the look out for any further storm updates. The storm is being closely monitored for any changes as the weather system nears our region.
