Wednesday winds are not as strong as the storm that hit the Spokane-area on Nov. 17, but they still have the potential to down power lines and topple trees.
The ground is still soaked by record rainfalls on Monday, challenging the foothold of trees that made it through the last storm.
In Spokane Valley, traffic signal outages should be reported to 911. Trees in the right of way, downed traffic signs, debris in the right of way and standing water in the right of way should be reported to (509) 921-1000 during regular office hours and by calling 911 after hours.
Spokane Valley public information officer Carolbelle Branch said storm water crews are already out surveying drains and looking for standing water.
"We still need folks to call us if they see a problem," Branch said. "They can really help us by doing so."
