We are a month removed from a significant weather event when a “heat dome” hovered over our state, bringing record temperatures and taking 116 lives. Climate change means we will experience more intense and frequent severe weather. We’re compiling resources to help keep our members, families, and communities safe in high temperatures. Please feel free to revisit this page as forecasts heat up and share information with your family and friends. Hot, dry weather also increases the likelihood of wildfires. You can view our wildfire resources here.
