Long Beach: Preparing for Tropical Storm
The Californer/10208834

Release Date: 2022-09-09

Over the past few days, Long Beach has been closely monitoring Tropical Storm Kay. City teams have been working around the clock to help protect homes and property along the Peninsula and our other shoreline communities. Swells are expected to increase in the next day before tapering off.

A unified command post has been established in the Claremont parking lot located at Claremont Avenue and Ocean Boulevard to help respond to the situation. Sandbags are available at 72nd Place/Ocean Boulevard and the Claremont lot. All Long Beach Fire Stations have empty sandbags for public use. Bins of sand are available at Fire Stations 7, 12, 13, and 14.

Long Beach Search and Rescue and our Community Emergency Response Teams are also mobilizing to assist with logistical needs, sandbags, and community support. Additionally, our Marine Safety Team along with Parks, Recreation and Marine equipment operators have been working around the clock to help protect vulnerable areas along the Peninsula with sand berms.

I want to thank everyone involved in this effort as they have been working tirelessly to help protect lives, homes and property from flooding during this storm.

If you need information or assistance, please reach out to our unified command center at 562-570-1360.

Thank you and stay safe,
Mayor Robert Garcia
