Flash Flood Warnings Issued Throughout South Bay Area

The National Weather Service has forecast high winds and rain starting Tuesday evening and continuing through Thursday morning. The ground is saturated due to previous rain and snow, so flash floods and landslides are possible.

Now is a good time to charge your phones, review emergency procedures and ensure that you have adequate supplies in case of a power outage. To sign up for emergency alerts, visit the AlertSCC website at: http://bit.ly/alert-scc. Learn more about the ReadySCC preparedness app at http://bit.ly/readyscc and the Twelve Month Emergency Preparedness Calendar at http://bit.ly/emergencyppreparedness.

High winds can lead to downed power lines and PG&E recommends that we assume downed power lines are energized and dangerous. Call 9-1-1 immediately to report the location of a downed line. After reporting the downed line, call PG&E at 1-800-743-5000. For more safety tips about power outages visit the PG&E website at http://bit.ly/reportpower.

The Santa Clara Valley Water District advises that if floodwaters rise around your car, abandon the car and move to higher ground. Check out the flood safety tips: before, during and after on the Santa Clara Valley Water District website http://bit.ly/safetyflood.

Take care on the roads, especially during the morning commute.
