Winter Storms


With winter rains upon us, it is important to be prepared.  The Town has storm resource information available on the website at:  https://www.townofsananselmo.org/776/Flooding-and-Storm-Resources.  

Information includes links to the flood gauge that measures creek depth, flood gate design information, flood protection tips, weather information, winter preparedness tips and sand bag information.
 
The Town has access to a number of different communication methods to deliver storm and weather related information to the community.  It is important, in addition, for each of us to stay tuned to local radio and TV stations to keep abreast of the weather forecast and be prepared with sand bags, flood gates or other prevention measures that are required in your specific situation.
 
As is always the case, during heavy winter rains, sand and sand bags are available for San Anselmo residents and merchants on Sunny Hills Drive in the parking lot adjacent to the tennis courts, which is across the street from Swirl, the yogurt shop in the Red Hill Shopping Center.
 
Important Information:  When you hear the flood horn, it means that flooding may be imminent. You should immediately move your family and vehicles to higher ground.  Please don’t use the flood horn as an opportunity to go see the creek firsthand.  Rushing flood waters are fast moving and very dangerous.
