Here's where you can get sandbags in Menifee for today's rainfall


Last updated 3/22/2018 at 11:58am

MENIFEE- In anticipation of the next round of expected rain this season, the City of Menifee is reminding residents that it has set up two self-serve sandbag sites for residents and businesses.

When properly placed, sandbags may redirect water and debris to flow away from your property, protecting your investments.

Self-serve sandbag stations are open 7 am to 7 pm in the following locations: Fire Station 76 Quail Valley Fire Station 29950 Menifee Road 28971 Goetz Road Menifee, CA 92586 Sun City, CA 92587

Residents and property owners should bring their own gloves and shovels and be prepared to fill up to 10 sandbags per resident. Sandbags should only be filled halfway so that they are not too heavy to lift and can be stacked properly.

It is the responsibility of the property owners to protect their private property prior to storm events. In addition to obtaining sandbags at these locations, sandbags may also be purchased at local hardware stores and/or building supply stores. Some building supply stores will deliver filled sandbags with advance notice.

Here’s a list of potentially life-saving tips for motorists and pedestrians during stormy weather and/or 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.

• Turn around, don’t drown! Do not drive over a flooded road.

Flowing water may hide large holes or areas of washed away

roadways. Watch for “Road flooded ahead” and “Road closed ahead”

signs and take an alternate route.

• If your car stalls, abandon it immediately and seek higher ground.

• Do not "sightsee" in flooded areas. Do not enter blocked off/closed
