Significant Weather Systems Anticipated Beginning January 4, 2023

The City of Huntington Beach is expecting numerous significant weather systems bringing heavy rain, significant winds, and high surf beginning this evening and into the coming days. The City is advising residents in low-lying areas to prepare for the potential for localized flooding and to remain vigilant of hazardous storm conditions.

In anticipation, the City has deployed additional resources to assist residents and businesses with preparations.

Free sandbag fill stations are available to Huntington Beach residents and businesses at the following locations:

  • Edison Community Center – 21377 Magnolia Street (Available 24/7)
  • Warner Fire Station – 3831 Warner Avenue (Available 24/7)
  • Huntington Beach Corporate Yard – 17371 Gothard Street (Available 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.)

Due to expected high tide and surf, staff is conducting ongoing inspection and reinforcement of the berm located in Sunset Beach to safeguard residents and property. At this time, there are no beach or pier closures in effect. Marine Safety will be monitoring beach and pier conditions and will issue closures, if necessary.

Avoid flood channels and driving or entering water of unknown depth, as moving water can quickly sweep you and your vehicle away. To report severe flooding, please call (714) 536-5921. To report downed trees, please call (714) 536-5480.

We wish to remind everyone to call 9-1-1 ONLY if you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency. If you require public safety assistance, but are not experiencing a life-threatening emergency, please call (714) 960-8811.
