Be Prepared for the Powerful Pacific Storm!

Release Date: 2014-12-11

A powerful Pacific storm is bearing down on Southern California this week, and is expected to bring heavy rainfall and strong wind gusts.

City crews are preparing for the storm with a coordinated, multi-department response by clearing thousands of catch basins; cleaning and testing 26 pump stations; fortifying sand berms on the beach; installing debris booms to prevent trash from entering the marina areas; maintaining storm run-off culverts on the beaches; installing plugs in the Naples sea wall to prevent flooding, as appropriate; deploying additional staff, including Swiftwater rescue teams, and equipment; and closely monitoring the situation.
