Tips to Prepare for the Storm and Stay Safe

  • Monitor the National Weather Service or local media for information about when severe weather will affect your community.
  • Flash flooding is possible across the region. The County of San Diego has a list of locations where you can get free sand and bags.
  • During the storm, avoid driving unless it is necessary. If you must drive, do not drive through standing water. Don’t drive around barriers and avoid crossing running water in your car or on foot.
  • If you see a downed powerline, always assume it is energized, stay away, and do not touch it or any other electrical equipment nearby. Call 911 or San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) at 1-800-411-7343 to report it or other electrical emergencies. If you smell gas or suspect a gas leak, leave the area. From a safe location, call 911 or call SDG&E at 1-800-611-7343.
  • To receive emergency notifications for this and all disasters, register for alerts at alertsandiego.org and download the SD Emergency mobile app.

How to Help
