City of Signal Hill: Free Sand and Sand Bags

A powerful Pacific storm is bearing down on Southern California and is expected to bring heavy rainfall and strong wind gusts.

Sand and empty bags will be available at the Signal Hill City Yard located at 2175 East 28th Street. Hours of operation are the following:
Monday through Thursday 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Friday 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

During periods of significant rainfall, avoid swimming in any coastal waters for three days following the end of the rainstorm.

Residents are also advised to:

Avoid areas that are subject to sudden flooding.
Do not attempt to drive through a flooded road, or walk across a flowing stream of water where the water is near or above your knees.
Slow down at intersections, especially those with non-working signal lights, and treat them as stop signs.
Be cautious while driving, especially at night.
Take appropriate steps to be prepared by securing personal property and vehicles in areas that are prone to flooding.
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.
Be aware of utility workers working in or near the road.
Stay off sand berms and stay away from City vehicles and machinery operating along the coastline.
Keep pets inside and ensure they have shelter from the storm.
Place refuse and recycling carts on the parkway or driveway apron.
Stay away from downed power lines and call 9-1-1 immediately if you see any downed power lines.

Thank You and Be Safe.
