The city of Mission Viejo is making sandbags available to residents who may need them to protect their property against the expected deluge.

Sand bags are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week through April on a first-come, first-served basis, according to a city press release. Bags are pre-filled and are limited to 10 bags per resident. Residents can pick up sand bags throughout the city at the following locations:

  • Alicia Park, 23650 Via Linda
  • Animal Services Center, 28095 Hillcrest
  • Mission Viejo Civic Center, 200 Civic Center
  • Florence Joyner Olympiad Park, 22760 Olympiad Road
  • Gilleran Park, 24960 Felipe Road
  • Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center, 24932 Veterans Way
  • Youth Athletic Park, 22056 Olympiad Road

 The city also offers these tips to prepare for the rain and to help prevent runoff:

  • Clear debris from gutters, downspouts and low areas in yards or patios that could cause water back-ups
  • Prevent runoff pollution into streets and storm drains by collecting any trash or landscape clippings from your property into their designated disposal containers
  • Check your drains to make sure they haven't gotten clogged. If they are, clean them and properly dispose of the debris
  • Check the catch basin at the end of your street. If it's clogged, call Public Services at 949-470-3095
  • Make sure your irrigation system has been adjusted for the change in weather
