The Wind Advisory alert that was previously set to expire at 4 pm has been extended into evening – the National Weather Service says wind “20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 40 mph” can now be expected until at least 7 pm.
Earlier, we reported on two more downed trees on public property. We asked Seattle Parks what they’ve been dealing with – spokesperson Rachel Schulkin replies, “We had 10 tree failures over the weekend. We are responding to another 11 today. And have responded to over 66 tree failures this month so far.” (And again, that’s just on Parks property.)
