Ready for Rain

The public is encouraged to plan ahead and prepare their properties for possible flooding before it occurs. When rain storms are forecasted, the City of Ventura. Here are a few ready for rain tips. 

  • Use sandbags to protect areas around your property from flooding.  Sand and sandbags are available for Ventura residents at the City's Maintenance Yard, located at 336 Sanjon Road. Supplies are limited and available on a first come, first serve basis. Supplies are in the parking lot for easy pick up, open from dawn to dusk.  
  • Register for VC Alert by texting "VC ALERT" to 313131 and following the directions on screen
  • Clear debris from curbside gutters and drains in yards, driveways and pool decks, and inspect roofs to check for loose tiles, holes, or other signs of trouble.
  • Reduce traffic speeds when driving. Stay focused and scan the road for potential road flooding or debris. Use extreme caution when crossing roads or areas of flowing water. Flowing water can be dangerous and deceivingly deep.  Keep away from flood control debris basins, channels, facilities and river beds
  • Keep emergency supplies on hand, such as a flashlight, water, food, first aid kit and a portable radio with extra batteries.
