Flooding Preparation Tips
Flooding is one of the most common hazards in Riverside County, and can cause property damage, injury, and even death

Flooding can contaminate drinking water and cause electrical disruptions, which can severely impact the City of Moreno Valley.

Floods can develop slowly over time, but can also progress very quickly in just a few minutes. Flash floods often have a dangerous wall of rapidly moving water that carries rocks, mud, debris and can sweep away anything in its path.

Be aware of flood hazards regardless of where you live, but be especially aware if you live in low lying areas, near water, or even near flood-prone areas or intersections.

Do not attempt to cross an area or intersection that appears to be flooded.

Before the Flood Warning or Watch

 Be prepared to respond to flooding by taking the following actions before the rains and flooding begin:

  • Assemble emergency supply kits for your home, workplace, and vehicle

  • Store a seven-day supply of food and water (at least one gallon per person, per day) in closed, clean containers

  • Gather and prepare sandbags

  • Stage plastic sheeting

  • Teach children not to play in or near rivers, streams, or other areas of potential flooding

  • Identify safe routes from your home or workplace to high, safe ground. Determine whether you can use these routes during flooding or storms. Be familiar with your geographic surroundings.

To help residents prepare, the City of Moreno Valley residents provides free sandbags and/or loose sand when rain is in the forecast.

When necessary, free sandbags will be available at the City’s Corporate Yard located at 15670 Perris Boulevard and at any Fire Station located throughout the city.

Loose sand will also be available at the City Yard and at specific locations as supplies are available. Residents should bring shovels to fill up to 25 sandbags per household.

For more information about sandbag and sand locations, please contact the City of Moreno Valley’s Corporate Yard at 951.413.3160 or the Moreno Valley Fire Department at 951.486.6780.
