Clark County announced Saturday that they have declared a state of Emergency for the Greater Clark County area.
The County said that “Multiple roads throughout the county, especially in Washougal, have become impassable due to deteriorating weather conditions.”
The county says that as of 6 a.m. six public works snowplows were stuck in deep snow and ice in the Washougal area.
“Our vehicles are equipped with chains and other safety measures to ensure they can traverse snow- and ice-covered roads,” said Public Works Director Ahmad Qayoumi. “This is a good reminder to the community that winter driving conditions are unpredictable and even the most prepared vehicles can have difficulty maneuvering through these conditions.”
Clark County Public Works is encouraging the community to stay home and off the roads until conditions improve.
