SMC ALERT – March 14

Due to the high volume 9-1-1 calls, please call 2-1-1 for non-emergency calls.

Due to extremely high wind conditions and wet ground, trees are falling throughout San Mateo County. Multiple roadways are blocked, and freeway lanes are being affected. Power is going out in multiple jurisdictions as well. Treat non-functional traffic signals as all-way stop signs. Avoid travel if possible, and use caution, as trees may fall unexpectedly. CHP, Caltrans, and local fire departments are responding to clear lanes as soon as possible.

Quick Storm Preparation Tips

  • Check roof drains and downspouts to make sure they are clear of debris.
  • Keep children away from creeks and large drains which can be deadly during storms.
  • Keep leaves and yard trimmings out of storm drains and gutters.
  • Don’t forget your pets, and don’t forget to pick up pet waste to prevent water pollution.
  • Turn off automatic sprinklers.
  • Don’t store hazardous materials in areas that may be subject to flooding.
  • Store emergency supplies (first aid kit, essential medicines, cash, food, non-electric can opener, portable battery-operated radio, flashlights and spare batteries) in air-tight bags and in handy locations.
  • Keep your car fueled. If electric power is cut off, filling stations may not be able to operate.
