Weather and Floods
Our weather hazards vary considerably: we see few violent thunderstorms and even fewer tornadoes, but potentially face everything other than tropical storms.Aumsville Tornado December 2010

Sever weather shelters: Washington County (NOTE: shelters typically do not open until November 1; this page will be updated when new information is available).

Public Sandbag Sites
Public agencies in Washington and Clackamas County typically have free sand and sandbags available from ~ October through May. During localized flooding incidents, you may wish to contact the specific agency to ensure availability; some city-hosted sites are for residents only.

NOTE: All sites are self-service; you must bring your own shovel. Filling sandbags may be a two-person job.
