El Niño storm dumps heavy rain in the Antelope Valley.

March 11, 2016

 

 

 

 

The low pressure storm is bringing heavy rain, winds gusts and snow to the mountains and valleys, the weather service said. Showers are expected to continue through early Saturday

 
The public can 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.
