Sandbags available for Menifee residents

In anticipation of the next round of expected rain this week, the City of Menifee is reminding residents that it has set up three self-serve sandbag sites located at the Menifee Lakes Fire Station 76, 29950 Menifee Rd., from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., the Quail Valley Fire Station 5, 28971 Goetz Rd., from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and the Maintenance Operations Center (MOC) Public Works Facility, 27860 Bradley Rd., from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Residents should bring their own gloves and shovels. Ten sandbags are allotted per resident unless there is a bigger flooding issue in which case 50 sandbags per resident is allotted.

The city offers the following tips for motorists and pedestrians during stormy weather and flooding:

  •  Avoid areas that are subject to sudden flooding.
  •  Do not cross flowing water on foot. Even six inches of flowing water can cause you to be swept away by strong currents.
