El Nino Preparedness Information

CI’s Emergency Management wants you to be prepared for the impending storm/winter weather season.

El Niño is characterized by unusually warm ocean temperatures in the Equatorial Pacific and may impact weather systems and climate around the globe. In general, El Niño may result in increased precipitation across California. According to the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), there is an approximately 95% chance that El Niño will continue through Northern Hemisphere winter 2015-16, gradually weakening through spring 2016.

The best preparation for possible flooding is to plan ahead. This website will provide you information on how protect your home, property and family. You can also view this video for storm predictions. There are three simple steps you can take to help protect your home from floodwaters and debris: Ready, Set, and Go!

READY – will teach you what you can do to prepare before flooding occurs
SET – will show you what to do if flooding is imminent.
GO! – will give you the information you need to safely evacuate.
