Do you live above an earthquake fault or make your home in a place at risk of burning in a wildfire? Do you regularly travel through areas prone to flooding or considered at risk of landslide? What could you expect if the Glacier Peak volcano erupted? Snohomish County’s dramatic landscape was shaped by powerful natural forces that are active still. Living here means living with the potential for natural disasters. The first step towards becoming prepared is to recognize and understand the risk. The Snohomish County Hazard Viewer is a new online tool designed to make that simple. “This easy-to-use viewer provides information our residents can use as they make preparedness plans for themselves and their families,” said Jason Biermann, Snohomish County Emergency Management Director.
