      WHEREAS, weather conditions consisting of snow followed by heavy rainfall creating flooding conditions in King County caused extensive damage to public property and facilities, and
      WHEREAS, persons and property have been and will be adversely affected unless further efforts are taken to reduce the potential threat to life and public property, and
      WHEREAS, the repair work to county roads and other public facilities must begin immediately to minimize the potential risk of personal injury and property damage, and
