Lynnwood opens its Emergency Operations Center

The snow and ice has prompted city officials to take the following action:

1. A limited EOC activation was put into effect at 4:30 p.m. today. This means the command staff and section chiefs for the EOC will continue to meet and plan for potential weather hazards and emergencies including blowing accumulations of snow and fallen trees throughout the night.
2. All non-essential personnel were released early from work at 3 p.m. today.
3. Tonight’s scheduled regular City Council meeting along with the Budget Hearing and Transportation Benefit District meeting have been cancelled and rescheduled for 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 29 in the City Council Chambers.

The EOC will be re-evaluating the weather conditions and needs for the city of Lynnwood throughout the night. Road closures to reduce potential collisions and updates will be available on the city’s website at

  1. So much for all that de-icer they laid down yesterday. It just takes the cake: they actually put it down like they were supposed to, before a single flake hit the ground. I just drove over all of that de-icer on my way home and everywhere they laid it down yesterday in my neighborhood it’s covered with ice. What a useless product!

    They need to lay down salt and cinders when the conditions warrant. We get a handful of dangerous weather days here, it won’t kill the environment to use it as sporadically as is warranted out here. Is it worth somebody’s life to let some stupid hippy feel better about not putting salt on the road one frickin’ day out of the year? Cripes.
