Forecasters issued a winter storm warning for mountains in Los Angeles and Ventura counties and have warned against mountain travel, saying significant snow accumulation is expected above 6,000 feet, with light snow accumulation possible down to 4,000 feet, low enough to affect drivers traveling through the Grapevine.
Many areas above 5,000 feet will see five to 10 inches of snow by Monday night
A winter storm warning will remain in effect for 4 a.m. Tuesday in the Los Angeles County and Ventura County mountains
SANDBAGS & SAND
The City of Lancaster is pleased to now provide six locations throughout the community for members of the public to obtain sand in order to fill sandbags in preparation for coming El Niño storms. The sand stock piles are located throughout Lancaster and are being made available to all Lancaster citizens. Citizens are encouraged to first utilize any excess dirt located on or near their property in order to maximize local resources toward this effort.
All Antelope Valley fire stations are offering 25 unfilled sandbags per citizen. To collect sand at the identified stock pile locations, citizens must bring their own tools and sandbags. In order to obtain the best results, citizens are advised to avoid overfilling their sandbags. Leave enough room to allow for the bags to be tied off and easily stacked. Overfilling the bags may cause them to tear and not stack properly, which will in turn compromise sandbag barriers, thus allowing water to flow through openings.
The sand stock pile sites are shown below, as well as on the attached map.
Sand Stock Pile Locations:
43000 N. 30th Street East (Soccer Center northeast corner, access off of 35th Street)
