With more rain in the forecast through the end of the week, the city and county are providing resources and encouraging San Diegans to take precautions.

To help curb potential flooding, residents can pick up free sandbags at various locations. If you notice a clogged or blocked storm drain, contact a dispatcher at the city’s Street Division. If you’re driving during this week’s storm, be aware of storm-related road closures and do not drive through flood waters — they could be deeper than they appear.

  • Damaged or lost trash bins

The county urges residents and business owners to complete its voluntary survey to assess damage from the storm on Jan. 22, 2024. The Spring Valley Library has also opened an assistance center to help locals impacted by flooding find resources.
