Mayor Greg Hansen Speaks on Preparedness

Thursday, November 25, 2021

In looking at the developing forecast for heavy rains and a rising river, Mayor Greg Hansen issued a statement today, “City staff and Public Works crews are on standby today and in the days to follow with all available resources ready to respond if river levels make this necessary.  I encourage individuals to also do what they can to prepare themselves and to help their neighbors.  If you are within a flood area, be prepared to secure your vehicles and belongings. Ferndale residents can also help by cleaning leaves and other debris from around the storm drains near your home.  Please check on your neighbors.  Watch for road closure notices before leaving home, and be patient with each other as this weather evolves.  We will continue to monitor this situation and will provide updates as they become available through our website and Facebook page.”

Out of an abundance of caution, the City of Ferndale is STRONGLY encouraging and requesting the voluntary evacuation of all residents and businesses in the area south of Main Street between 4th Avenue and the Nooksack River, effective immediately.  The Nooksack River has not yet reached its crest, and the potential exists for the river to breach the existing levee.  Residents and businesses are encouraged to secure and then evacuate their properties; the City will inform the public when it is safe to return.  All residents outside of the voluntary evacuation area are requested to avoid any unnecessary trips and to stay off the roadways, in order for emergency and first responders to effectively respond to the emergency.

Evacuees should exit to the north and Main Street to leave the area.  Temporary shelter is now available at the Ferndale High School cafeteria, which can be accessed off Golden Eagle Drive or Shuksan Drive from Vista Drive or Washington Street.  More to come on more shelter options as information becomes available.  For questions, please call Ferndale City Hall at (360) 384-4006.
