Event Details

We’re expecting nearly 4 inches of rain and heavy winds in San Francisco on Thursday. Check for outages on PG&E’s website.

Here are some simple tips from the SF Department of Emergency Management to stay safe and dry:

  • Sweep up leaves and litter from the sidewalks. This can help keep storm drains from getting clogged.
  • Construct barriers to stop floodwater from entering your home or building.
  • The SF Department of Public Works offers free sandbags to protect your property. Get up to 10 free filled sandbags. Open M-F 7 am to 4 pm at 2323 Cesar Chavez Street. Bring ID to prove you are an SF resident.
  • If water has entered a garage or basement, do not walk through it. You can’t always see or smell what’s in the water and it could be harmful to you.
  • Walking through moving water is dangerous. Six inches of moving water can make you fall.
  • Review emergency supplies. Do you have batteries for your flashlight, just in case the power goes out? Visit www.sf72.org/supplies for more ideas.
