How will climate change affect you? New tool gives an educated guess [View all]

EVERETT — As the planet warms, it is no secret that Snohomish County residents will grapple with more wildfires, floods and other natural disasters. But some neighborhoods will suffer more than others.

This month, Snohomish County launched the Climate Vulnerability Tool as a way to illustrate how climate change trends will affect residents, depending on where they live in the county.

The interactive tool will help Snohomish County leaders identify “where folks are less able to mitigate and adapt” due to climate change and “where programs can be most helpful,” said Eileen Canola, a senior planner with the county.

County leaders used the money to hire the consultants who compiled the Snohomish County Climate Change Vulnerability and Risk Assessment Report and designed the first version of the Climate Vulnerability Tool.
