Practical steps to prepare early for El Niño 

With climatologists predicting a strong El Niño this winter, the Town of Los Gatos encourages residents to take steps now to prepare for winter storms.

Here's what you can do now to prepare for a wet winter:

  • Prepare your home: keep ditches, gutters and other water collection ways clear of leaves and debris.
  • Keep trees properly trimmed.
  • Maintain your home's roof and repair any leaks or damage now before the rains come.
  • Check your vehicle's windshield wipers to make sure they are working properly.
  • Ensure proper tire maintenance for your vehicle(s).
  • There may be power outages so store up plenty of flashlight batteries.
  • Have an emergency kit ready.
  • If you're a pet owner, ID your pets. Make sure your pet is wearing a collar and identification tag that includes your current address and phone number. You can also have your pet micro-chipped.

Self-fill sand bags will be available at the parking lot near Balzer Field located at 41 Miles Avenue by November 30, 2015.

Be sure to sign up for AlertSCC in order to receive emergency warnings directly to your cellphone, email or landline.
