Long Beach Storm – Rain – Flood – High Tide Warning Tips
Significant amounts of rain are expected by Friday and Saturday in Long Beach, and more rain in the foothill areas of Southern California. Thunderstorms are possible and high tides are expected on both Friday and Saturday.
Be Prepared for Winter Storms
Cooler temperatures, fog, wind, and rain are here. Significant amounts of rain are expected by Friday and Saturday in Long Beach, and more in the foothill areas of Southern California. Thunderstorms are possible.
City of Long Beach Public Works Staff has prepared the city for winter rains by clearing 3,800 catch basins; cleaning and testing 26 pump stations as well as preparing response teams to address any storm related issues that might arise. Parks, Recreation and Marine staff has prepared the beaches and waterways for the winter storms by building berms to protect low-lying sections of the beach; installing debris booms to prevent trash from entering the marina areas; maintain storm run-off culverts on the beaches, and monitoring the lake and lagoon water levels to prevent flooding.
The rainfall is forecast to coincide with high tides, and city staff will be monitoring water levels in Naples to mitigate any flooding if possible.
Now is the perfect time for residents to prepare your home and family for the upcoming winter storms, as well as major emergencies in general; here are some suggestions to keep you and your family safe before, during and after a significant incident.
Before a Severe Storm…
Take the following precautions:
· Keep copies of insurance policies, important documents as well as other valuables in a safe place and in a water resistant container. Consider a safe-deposit box for critical documents or items.
· Consider purchasing flood insurance coverage for homeowners or renters.
· Store emergency supplies and contact information in a handy location at work and home. Consider storing some items in your car as well.
· Build an “Emergency Kit” and make a family Communications Plan. An emergency kit will serve you well in a storm, an earthquake or any other disaster scenario. Visit the following websites for more information on preparing your emergency kit and your communications plan: www.redcross.org/, www.fema.gov/, or www.calema.ca.gov/
· Keep your car fueled and some cash on hand. If electric power is cut off, filling stations and ATM’s might not be able to operate.
· Know safe routes from your home or office to high, safe ground.
· Consider keeping some water proofing materials handy for emergency repairs, including sandbags, plastic sheeting, plywood or lumber, duct tape, etc.
Sand and Sandbags – Sand is currently available at the Long Beach Public Works/Public Service Yard, 1651 San Francisco Ave., at the Esther Street Gate.Tomorrow afternoon, sand will be available at the following Long Beach Fire Stations:
· Station No. 7, 2295 Elm Ave.
· The Old Station No. 12, 6509 Gundry Ave.
· Station No. 13, 2475 Adriatic Ave.
· Station No. 14, 5200 E. Eliot St.
Empty sandbags are available at all neighborhood Fire Stations, except the new Fire Station 12.
During A Severe Storm…
Use these guidelines:
· Tune to local radio or television stations for emergency information and instructions from local authorities. In an emergency KKJZ 88.1 FM will broadcast information to the Long Beach community.
· Avoid areas that are subject to sudden flooding.
· Do not try to walk across a flowing stream of water where the water is near or above your knees.
· Avoid unnecessary trips. If you must travel during the storm, dress in warm, loose layers of clothing. Advise others of your destination and estimated arrival time.
· Keep pets inside and ensure they have shelter from the storm.
· Be especially cautious driving at night when it is harder to recognize flood dangers. If you are driving:
o Know this – Six inches of water will reach the bottom of most passenger cars causing loss of control and possible stalling. A foot of water will float many vehicles. Two feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles including sport utility vehicles (SUV’s) and pick-up trucks.
o Do not attempt to drive through a flooded road. The depth of water is not always obvious. The roadbed may be washed out under the water, and you could be stranded or trapped.
o Do not drive around a barricade. Barricades are there for your protection. Turn around and go the other way.
o Slow down for traffic officers at intersections with non-working signal lights. Treat all non-working traffic signal lights at intersections as stop signs. Be aware of utility workers working in or near the road.
o Do not sightsee in flooded areas. Do not try to enter areas blocked off by local authorities.
· If advised by local authorities to leave your home, do not delay leaving. Move to a safe area before access is cut off by floodwater. Before leaving, disconnect all electrical appliances.
After A Severe Storm …
Take theses steps:
· Stay tuned to radio or television for information and instructions from local authorities. In an emergency KKJZ 88.1 FM will broadcast information to the Long Beach community.
· Follow local instructions regarding the safety of drinking water. If in doubt, boil or purify water before drinking.
· Avoid disaster areas; your presence could hamper rescue and other emergency operations, and you may be in danger.
· Do not handle live electrical equipment in wet areas. If electrical equipment or appliances have been in contact with water, have them checked before use.
· You should avoid downed power lines and broken gas lines. Report downed electrical lines immediately by calling 911. To report a broken gas lines, first move to a safe location and then call Long Beach Gas & Oil at 562.570.2140. If you hear a hissing or a roaring sound and smell an unusual odor, first move to a safe location and immediately call 911.
· You should avoid swimming in the ocean and bays during and within 72 hours of a storm. Obey all lifeguard instructions and posted signs at beaches.
Don’t be caught off guard, get the facts and know the risks. Take action to protect yourself, your family, your business, and your finances-before a weather event occurs and it’s too late.

– The public is also reminded that the law strictly prohibits the consumption of alcoholic beverages on public property (sidewalks, medians, roads, etc.), and anyone found in violation will be subject to citation or arrest
– Municipal and Penal Code sections in regards to under-age drinking and/or possession of alcohol will also be enforced
– Street vendors selling items without a business license are also subject to citation or arrest and may have their property confiscated
– NO dispensing of Silly String … violators may be cited for littering
– Signs notifying the community of potential enforcement action will be posted along the route and inside most businesses
– Parade goers are reminded to report any suspicious activity immediately to the nearest officer or by calling 9-1-1. IF YOU SEE SOMETHING … SAY SOMETHING!
Affected streets closures and times are as follows:
– Livingston Avenue will be closed from Ocean Boulevard to Second Street at 2:00 p.m. for staging parade participants
– At 4:00 p.m., all north/south streets from Quincy to Claremont Avenues will be closed up to the immediate alleyways that run parallel to 2nd Street on both the south and north sides
