Nov. 5 through Dec. 2, 2021, severe storms threatened Clallam, Skagit, Whatcom counties and Lummi Nation, Nooksack Indian Tribe, and Quileute Tribe by bringing the largest and, for some areas, most severe, disaster to occur in history. As a result, over 1000 individuals were forced to evacuate.

The U.S. Small Business Administration filing deadline for the severe storms, straight-line winds, flooding, landslides and mudslides from Nov. 5 to Dec. 2, 2021 was March 7 for physical damage and is Oct. 5 for Economic Injury Disaster Loans.

– Many Washington residents may believe they don't need to buy flood insurance because they don't live in a high-risk flood zone. However, flooding can happen anywhere, often to the surprise of residents who thought they were covered for disaster. One inch of floodwater can cause up to $25,000 of damage in a home and when flooding happens, the damage is not covered by most homeowners' insurance policies.
