National Weather Service issues a Flood Watch for Pacific Northwest


On Thursday, November 30, the National Weather Service (NWS) issued a Flood Watch for the Pacific Northwest. NWS predicts an active weather pattern that will continue with a series of frontal systems through December 6, bringing with it excessive rainfall that could cause river flooding, and may also lead to isolated residential and/or urban flooding.

  • Friday: 8 to 12 p.m. 

Please enter through City Hall, located at 920 SE Cedar Falls Way. You may enter the Public Works parking lot, where you will find sand in a covered area and bags. Residents will need to fill bags themselves and provide their own shovels, but the materials are available free of charge.
