The Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind clam diggers and deer hunters of the potential hazards of being outdoors this weekend.
Saturday’s expected storm will bring high seas and rough surf with projected severe sustained wind speeds with gusts potentially reaching speeds of over 70 miles per hour.
Please remember to err on the side of caution and protect yourself and your friends and family.
If you are going to be in the woods, be prepared for falling trees, mudslides and other obstacles the incoming storm may challenge us with.
The Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Department says they are always there to serve and protect our citizens and visitors, but until the winds from the incoming storm diminish, they will be reluctant to put their equipment and the safety of their searchers in harm’s way for a search and rescue mission during this possible historic storm.
Please use extreme caution and sound judgment before going out clam digging or hunting.
It is the department’s recommendation that you stay off the beaches and out of the woods until the storm has passed.
