What can I do to prepare for the storms?
- Sign up for Emergency Mass Notifications – Visit buttecounty.net/massnotifcation to receive urgent alerts via phone call, text message or email.
- Be aware of your risk – Pay attention to weather forecasts and those in low-lying areas should remain aware of your surroundings at all times. Listen to local authorities.
- Be prepared – Prepare an evacuation plan. Always have an emergency evacuation kit ready and be prepared to evacuate early. Tips are available at ready.gov.
- Take action – Don’t wait to evacuate if flooding or a mud flow appears imminent. Don’t walk or drive through flood waters.
