Prepare for forecasted heavy rains and high winds

The National Weather Service reports that a strong storm system will move through Southern California late Thursday night through Saturday, bringing heavy rain and winds. Orange and Los Angeles counties are expected to receive the brunt of the storm, with 3 to 5 inches of rain predicted and winds up to 50 miles per hour in the passes and canyon areas.
 
 To prepare your home and help prevent runoff, remember to clear debris from gutters, downspouts and low areas in yards or patios that could cause water back-ups. Prevent runoff pollution into streets and storm drains by collecting any trash or landscape clippings from your property, and clear all drains to allow for the most efficient flow of water.  
 
 City Public Works staff are currently inspecting, cleaning and clearing catch basins and flow lines to prevent flooding and other issues in anticipation of the storm. Regular street sweeping also helps to prevent debris from blocking drains and causing flooding. During rainy events, crews are on call to respond to downed trees and flooding.
 
 To report downed trees, flooding or other rain-related issues during office hours, call (949) 635-1800. After hours, call Orange County Sheriff’s Department’s non-emergency line at 949-770-6011. You can also report non-emergency issues online to the City here using our Community Connection Citizen Request Tracker.  Register at AlertOC for emergency notifications via text message, email, or landline phones.
