As a Seattle car accident attorney I hope there hasn’t been any accidents related to the fallen tree and power line near Bucoda. Hopefully, the electricity company and the authorities will do a great job keeping the area safe and well flagged so no one will suffer an accident by not being aware of the road conditions.
