Weather forecasters are predicting a wet winter. The County encourages all residents to get ready before the rains begin. Previous El Nino events have caused heavy rains and winds resulting in mudslides, downed trees, flooding, and property damage.
Avoid problems by preparing yourself and your property now!
Know Your Flood Risk
Evaluate your property. Where does rain pool? How does runoff drain, and to where?
Prepare For Your Needs
Get emergency supplies in order. Plan for food, water, medical and personal comfort needs for each household resident. Plan an evacuation route in case of fast rising water. Ready.gov
Prepare Your Home and Property
If you see something that could become a flood hazard, or if you spot water rising on a street, a pipe leaking, or a levee breaching, please notify the County Flood Control District right away.
