Flood Preparation Fact Sheet

San Diego is expected to experience a large amount of rainfall in the coming months. If your home or property is located in an area that could flood, please make yourself familiar with these steps provided by Councilmember Lorie Zapf's office to prepare and what to do if you are flooded.

Before It Rains:

  • Sign up for Alert San Diego notifications for all your telephone numbers. 
  • Make sure you know the safest routes to and from home should flooding occur. 
  • Create a family communication plan to stay in touch with loved ones. 
  • Protect your pets. Be sure they have proper identification (microchip). 
  • Have transportation ready for all larger animals under your responsibility. 

When Rains Begin:

  • Leave early if your property is in a flood zone. Water levels can rise fast once storms start. Do not hesitate to move if you see rising water. 
  • Follow all instructions issued by public safety personnel. 
  • Take advantage of shelters and staging areas. There will be important resources available should they be established during storms.
