Natl Weather Service: wind storm predicted for Puget Sound, gusts up to 43 mph

The National Weather Service is predicting high winds this afternoon in much of western Washington, with gusts of up to 43 miles an hour in Seattle. Weather Underground is predicting gusts up to 50 miles an hour.

So what if a tree falls on your carport, or your boat at the marina sinks in high winds? And who pays to clean up all those branches that fell into your yard?

We've posted answers for all these storm-related questions on our website. Take a look.

(And here's some good news: the wind's supposed to let up by this evening.)

If you have damage and have questions or problems with your insurer (and live in Washington state), call our consumer affairs hotline at 1-800-562-6900. It's not a phone tree; it's staffed by live people.
