Sumner officials are recommending that roughly 400 residents get to higher ground.

They’ve recommended residents who live in Rainier Manor, Rivergrove Apartments and the units of Riverwalk adjacent to the Puyallup River evacuate, the city reported just after 8 a.m.

“All other residents in the Rivergrove area are asked to remain alert,” a city press release states.

Evacuating residents should bring with them warm clothes, medications, personal hygiene items, personal identification, health insurance cards and water and food.
