Below-freezing temperatures have descended upon the Snoqualmie Valley with a forecast that shows them sticking around for the next few days, with the added potential for more snow later this week. The extreme winter weather can be particularly difficult, and even life-threatening for neighbors who don’t have access to safe, adequate shelter. We’ve compiled some helpful information for those seeking shelter, cold weather gear, warm meals, and other resources – read on to learn more.
This list is focused on the Snoqualmie Valley but includes other Eastside and King County resources as well. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional resources you’d like us to add to this list.
