Make sure you stay informed.

Do you live above an earthquake fault? Do you regularly travel through areas prone to flooding or considered at risk of landslide? What could you expect if the Glacier Peak volcano erupted?

The Snohomish County Hazard Viewer is a collection of interactive digital maps designed to help people better understand and manage hazard risks. Information is presented in a searchable format so you can be aware of and prepare for potential hazards where you live and work, and the many other places life takes you. There also are links to tips and other helpful tools. Are you ready?
