The alerts blog is intended to provide current information to Seattle residents during weather or other emergency related responses and includes blog posts and current information from multiple departments.

This blog will be especially active when the city activates the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and Joint Information Center (JIC). In times of non-emergency, the blog will include basics about emergency preparedness and other Seattle alerts. When the EOC isn’t activated, this blog will be updated during business hours, Monday-Friday.

During an EOC activation, the blog will be updated as situations change and information becomes available.

As always, please call 911 for life or property threatening emergencies.
