We should all be mindful of rainy day conditions and prepare before it happens. Inspect your windshield wipers and tires, carry an umbrella in your vehicle and be alert to the first rain of the season which creates very slick roadways.
City crews and contractors have prepared for upcoming rain in our city cleaning storm drains, placing sandbags and inspecting waterways. You should prepare as well by cleaning your rain gutters, be conscientious of not parking in front of storm drains to allow our crews to perform maintenance if needed. Also be mindful of tree branches when you park. If a limb has fallen, contact the police business number at 310-378-4211 as soon as possible.
The city provides sandbags and sand to residents. Empty bags can be obtained at the police department and the sand is located next to the fire department on the west side.
