Last weekend’s warm temperatures drew large crowds to Washington State’s lakes, rivers, ocean beaches and Puget Sound. Unfortunately, the exodus to enjoy the water also brought tragic drownings and many close calls, notes the Sky Valley Chronicle. The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office and other public agencies have issued public service announcements promoting water safely for rafters, boaters and swimmers.
Additional water safety reminders come from the Washington State Department of Health.
