More Rain to Soak the Bay Area, Here's How to Prepare
|On the brighter side ... nudists hate the rain|
"The San Francisco Department of Public Works is getting ready for the expected rains -- clearing catch basins, checking for vulnerable trees -- and we hope the public can help out, too," DPW Director Mohammed Nuru said today.
So here's what you should do to stay dry and safe:
- Sweep up leaves in front of your homes and businesses and put them in the compost;
- Put all your litter in the trash or recycling bins, because believe it or not, it can reduce the chance of more flooding;
- For people living or working in low-lying neighborhood, go get your free sandbags.
Those handy sandbags are available only to San Francisco residents and businesses, and can be picked up at the DPW Operations Yard at 2323 Cesar Chavez St.
Don't forget, there's a limit of 10 sandbags per household or business. And if you do see clogged drains, flooding, or any other treacherous situations during the next storm, please dial 311, the city's Customer Service Center.
