Skagit County, Washington
We have decided to cancel tonight's meeting due to threat of weather. We feel like having a public meeting on the evening of a wind storm would not be wise. At this point we are not planning to reschedule, our plan is to move forward with some of our direct service to witnesses/survivors at this time. If you do have a community group or system that is looking for additional resources/support related to the incident let us know.
