El Niño Update
We hope that everyone has survived the recent storms with no or few problems. El Nino conditions with significant rain and stormy periods will continue all winter and through March. Seasonal rainfall is projected to be up to 150 to 200% higher this year, so plan accordingly. Clean all rain gutters and provide a method for run-off to move through your property with minimal damage. The storms are going to cause higher than normal sea levels, so if this could affect you or your property, please pay special attention and act accordingly. Report any conditions the city may be able to provide a remedy by calling our Public Works Department at (619) 423-8311
