King County flood alerts
How to maximize your alert message delivery
Automated alerts are one of many ways to help protect your home, family, or business during a flood. However, in an emergency no one system is foolproof. Therefore, it is important to check multiple sources for information – such as radio, television and the Internet – and use varied methods of delivery for getting information directly – such as voice, text or email.
