Heavy Rain Brings Flooding and Road Closures to San Diego?
Heavy rain and flooding impacted many parts of San Diego’s coastal communities last month when recent storms took swept away sand tracts all along the coast. As you can imagine, our local San Diego City, South West team was busy responding to storm damage emergencies. The City of San Diego’s website offers this helpful information on storm preparedness:
- Know the safest routes to and from home should flooding occur.
- When placing your trash, yard, and recycle bins out on the street for collection, place each bin approximately two to three feet away from the curb, so they do not impede the stormwater flowing on the street.
- Sweep up trash, sediment, and debris, and dispose of construction waste in the trash to avoid having these items enter and block the stormwater collection system.
When Rains Arrive
- Report flooding to the City's emergency dispatch center at 619-527-7500
- For life-threatening emergencies call 9-1-1
- Report downed electrical lines or gas emergencies to San Diego Gas & Electric at 800-411-7343
- Leave early if your property is in a flood zone. Water levels can rise fast once storms start. Do not hesitate to move if you see rising water.
- Follow all instructions issued by public safety personnel
- Drive carefully! Take your time getting home or to work.
- Slow down and do not drive through standing water
