The National Weather Service has forecasted that extreme cold and wet weather is heading our way. The City is monitoring the weather forecast closely for updates.

The City’s Public Works crews are preparing vehicles now installing snowplows, de-icing equipment, and sanders on our heavy trucks.

Now is a good time to make sure you are prepared for snow, ice, and possible power outages.

Support for People Experiencing Homelessness

For those living unsheltered, the City is working closely with the Highline United Methodist Church to support the opening of an extreme weather overnight shelter. Plans are being made to open the Burien Community Center as a daytime warming center as well. More information will be shared about the shelter and warming center in the next few days.
