Kittitas County Sheriff's Office issues Level One EOC

Posted: Updated:

KITTITAS COUNTY, WA - The Kittitas County Sheriff's Office has implemented a Level One Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Activation in preparation for more flooding. Level one is to address local short term issues using local resources to help make sure the county is ready. 

There was a slight rise in the flooding level Tuesday night because of warmer temperatures and the rain. The lower valley is seeing water over driveways and roads near Reecer Creek, Park Creek, and the west end of Thrall Road.

Deputies are asking drivers to be careful and not to drive through any standing or moving water. If you have water over septic systems or in your home, you should contact the Sheriff's Office for help. 

The county has sand and bags available at the Upper County Shop and the Fairgrounds in Ellensburg.
