We are PROUD to work for YOU
FLOOD AND WEATHER INFORMATION
Last updated 11/26/21 at 3:30PM
The City is closely monitoring the weather and river level forecasts ahead of a weather system expected to bring significant rain to our area over the next several days. Crews have and will continue to monitor conditions and the City’s levy systems over the coming hours and days. Information regarding closures and response actions will be posted here and on our Facebook page as it becomes available.
Because forecasts and conditions can change rapidly, this is not a time for panic, but an excellent time to prepare yourself, your home, and your vehicle for severe weather. Preparedness is key, and the City will be doing the same as we poise ourselves to act, should it become necessary. All systems are in place to deal with events as they evolve, including activating the City’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC), depending on the severity of the upcoming weather conditions.
Slater Road in Whatcom County (LaBounty Drive to Ferndale Road) CLOSED
We will post road closures in and around Ferndale as we become aware of them. For a list of Whatcom County road closures, please visit their website at: https://www.whatcomcounty.us/civicalerts.aspx?AID=2954
VanderYacht Park gates (located at Portal Way/Washington Street) will be closed the afternoon of Thursday, November 25, 2021, ahead of a possible flood event. It is estimated they will be reopened once river level predictions and observations drop below 17′, and we do not have an estimate as to when that may occur.
