City of San Diego prepares for weekend’s rainstorm

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — The City of San Diego has crews preparing for this weekend’s storm which National Weather Service officials predict will drop a ½ inch to an inch of rain along the San Diego coast.

Due to the length of time since the last measurable rainfall in the area, debris accumulation may block drainage ways and gutters causing flooding.

Portable pump stations will be manned in case of excessive water in flood prone areas including Pacific Beach and Ocean Beach, among other areas.

Sandbags are available at recreation centers in our city – one in each Council District. Please be aware that the sandbags are for city of San Diego residents. Ten empty bags per person will be provided while supplies last. Residents may want to call the individual recreation center for hours and availability information.
