Roof safety urged with heavy snowfall

Summary

Use caution when clearing snow. Snow mixed with rain falling on the deep, heavy snow already around the region is creating a potential hazard for King County residents. The rains and snow mixture may create growing snow loads on rooftops, which could cause safety hazards such as structural collapse or sliding snow (link to King County Office of Emergency Management news release).
