Rains, possibly heavy at times, are heading back to San Diego County in the coming days, according to weather officials. Which means it could be a good time to get some free sandbags.
More rain? More sandbags. With days of heavy rains predicted, the County has a new list of even more places where residents can get sand and bags to help protect property.
Have you ever tried to go for a hike after it rains only to find the trail is closed and wondered why? We went out to Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve and talked with a County Park Ranger to find out.
San Diego County got two to five times more rain in December 2016 than it did in December 2015 when El Niño was raising fears of big rains. With more rain this week and more winter ahead, residents can get free sandbags to protect property.
With heavy rains expected, the County Department of Public Works is once again offering free sand and bags to residents in the unincorporated areas to help protect homes, neighborhoods and streets from flooding and erosion.
