Some People don't ever learn, still they do want they want do at the height of stormy weather playing surfing at the sea. Its there risk if they insist to do something wrong and blame there self. Don't rescue. they know the risk factor.

Hello from Seattle. We wish you all well down there. Last year at this time we were probably up to our necks in snow. Hope beautiful Southern California is soon back to normal.

Salutations from Long Beach! Yes, we're pretty much in the thick of it down here, with mudslides, floodig and dead bloated bodies on the beach from up the LA river, as well as, apparently, another pesky body in bixby we don't know what the heck to do with. Oh course, we're not as bad off as Haiti. Don't get us wrong. But we have our fair share of third-world human misery and pestilence, to be sure. Best to you and yours!

Your welcome and I'm sure the Swartz welcomes you also. Governor Arnold stated last year that we were in a drought so we thought it would be nice to borrow your weather for a while since our budget couldn't afford seeding our clouds this year.

The PT deleted this last time I posted it. I guess they don't care if your getting flooded out. They could post it themselves. Hey PT, if you delete this a least post a good reason why.

Emergency Sand Bag Information from the City of Long Beach

Crews today are bringing in an additional 400 tons of sand for residents, who picked up 150 tons of sand yesterday at Fire Stations. We are closing in on 50,000 sandbags distributed by now.

With powerful storms bearing down on the region, residents and businesses are urged to prepare themselves for the possibility of significant rainfall.

The City of Long Beach is providing sand and bags for residents to make their own sandbags. The public may pick up sand at four fire stations (listed below) and the City's Public Service Yard. Sand bags are being provided at all neighborhood fire stations.

Residents must bring a shovel and fill their own sand bags; however, residents with mobility impairments, or seniors who need assistance can obtain filled bags at the Senior Center at El Dorado Park West, 2800 Studebaker Road, and the Long Beach Senior Center, 1150 E. 4th St.

In addition, the City of Long Beach has prepared a list of important safety tips and emergency phone numbers for residents to access in the event of power outages, downed trees, flooding, etc. Emergency responders train and are prepared to respond to a disaster or other significant incident; however, residents are strongly urged to prepare themselves for a major emergency, with the goal of being able to be self-sustaining for at least 72 hours.


The City of Long Beach is providing free sand to residents at four Fire Stations. Residents must bring and use their own shovel (self-service) to get the sand, which is available in large bins outside the following four fire stations:

Station No. 7 2295 Elm Ave.
Station No. 12 6509 Gundry Ave.
Station No. 13 2475 Adriatic Ave.
Station No. 14 5200 Eliot St.
Sand can also be obtained for free at the Public Works/San Francisco Yard, 1601 San Francisco Ave.(outside, next to the gate, on the Esther Street side).
The City of Long Beach provides ten free sandbags to Long Beach residents and businesses with proper identification. Sand can also be obtained for a slight fee at local hardware stores. Please go to one of the following neighborhood fire stations to obtain your free sandbags:
Station No. 1 100 Magnolia Ave.
Station No. 2 1645 E. 3rd St.
Station No. 3 1222 Daisy Ave.
Station No. 4 411 Loma Ave.
Station No. 5 7575 E. Wardlow Rd.
Station No. 7 2295 Elm Ave.
Station No. 8 5365 E. 2nd St.
Station No. 9 3917 Long Beach Blvd.
Station No. 10 1417 Peterson Ave.
Station No. 11 160 E. Market St
Station No. 12 6509 Gundry Ave.
Station No. 13 2475 Adriatic Ave.
Station No. 14 5200 Eliot St.
Station No. 17 2241 Argonne Ave.
Station No. 18 3361 Palo Verde Ave.
Station No. 19 3559 Clark Ave.
Station No. 22 6340 Atherton St.
Sandbags will last as long as they don't have a hole. If the bags are reusable, residents should keep them for the next major rainstorm. To discard, distribute sand in a flower bed or over a lawn, and then throw away the empty bags.
Do not take sand from the beach. It is illegal to dump sand at the beach, in the gutter or in the storm drain system. Sand can be returned to the Public Works/San Francisco Yard, 1601 San Francisco Ave.
