SJC DEM Media Update: Winter Weather Continues

Posted February 11, 2019 at 8:08 am by

From San Juan Coun­ty Dept. of Emer­gency Management…
 
As of 7am on Mon­day, Coun­ty Road Crews are report­ing the heav­i­est overnight snow on Orcas and the north and west sides of San Juan Island, with some loca­tions receiv­ing up to 8 inch­es of snow since late Sunday.
 
Accord­ing to Coun­ty Pub­lic Works Direc­tor Russ Har­vey, “Road con­di­tions are dif­fi­cult in places with blow­ing snow and accu­mu­la­tions. Our crews are work­ing hard, but some loca­tions are fill­ing back in about as quick­ly as we can plow them
 
Ear­ly reports from road crews are of less snow on Lopez Island, and around Fri­day Har­bor. “Dri­vers should use com­mon sense and not push their com­fort lev­els if con­di­tions appear unsafe” says Harvey.
 
There’s more snow in the fore­cast for late Mon­day into Tues­day, so islanders should be pre­pared for the win­try con­di­tions to continue.
