El Nino Preparation

Many Southern California cities are preparing for the 95% chance that El Nino conditions will arrive during the upcoming 2015-2016 winter season. The heavy rains and stormy conditions that are being predicted could potentially cause problems such as flooding, land erosion, debris and pollution in beaches and harbors, and structural damage to private and public property.

The City of Redondo Beach is in the process of implementing the following precautionary measures to limit damage and infrastructure loss:

  • Sewer line and catch basin cleaning
  • Generator and emergency pumps testing
  • Coordinating with Athens Services for storm debris removal
  • Identifying and preparing maps of possible flooding areas
  • Procurement of additional safety equipment and supplies such as sandbags, barricades and flashers, traffic control devices, street warning signs and temporary lighting
  • And more
