Tigard/Tualatin South Metro weather alerts and how to receive them
The residents located in the South Metro area in the Portland Metropolitan area, there are various different ways to keep informed during inclement weather events, including severe storm events. SERVPRO of Tigard/Tualatin/Lake Oswego/West Linn and Beaverton is passionate about preparedness. We at SERVPRO believe that safety is the most important part of responding to a storm event. Once the storm passes, our crews are ready to respond to businesses and homes in our community that need to recover after property damage.
If you live in the three largest cities in the South Metro - Tigard, Tualatin, or Beaverton and their surrounding areas - check below to see where you can receive emergency weather alerts prior to our winter storm season.
Please note: In the case of snow, ice, or freezing rain conditions, be wary of driving and reduce your driving activities, if possible. Stay up to date with road and weather conditions in your area, and be aware of the risks. For example, the Tigard Police Department may issue tickets for abandoned vehicles during snow events, as cars blocking roads and freeways in prior years have created further unsafe road conditions.
