Damaging winds and ongoing rain moved into Western Washington earlier this week causing wide-spread tree damage and flooding to our region. To report downed branches or tree concerns that are impacting public right-of-way areas or parks, please submit a request online at redmond.gov/ServiceRequest or through the “Your Redmond” mobile app with the specific location and description of the issue.
Safety Tips: After a Wind Storm
Here are some safety tips for you and your family:
Never go near downed power or utility lines and always stay at least 35 ft. away. Find more safety tips here.
For non-emergency questions or to report a downed tree on public property that is not a danger, please submit a service request at redmond.gov/ServiceRequest.
If you come upon a roadway that appears to be flooded, DON'T try to drive through it. If you come across barricades blocking off a flooded section of the road, DON'T try to drive around them. Turn around and find a detour.

open windows and vents
