Sandbag locations open Sunday and Monday for Roseville residents and businesses
City of Roseville staff continue to actively monitor the incoming storm systems for this weekend and early next week. The storms this weekend are not predicted to bring much rain but will bring heavy winds especially overnight Saturday into Sunday morning. Heavier rain is predicted for Monday and Tuesday.
With the ground saturated from recent rain, the likelihood of localized power outages is higher than normal due to falling trees and tree limbs.
Roseville Electric crews are on standby to respond quickly to power outages. It is important note that 85 percent of power lines in Roseville are underground.
Here are tips to help you prepare in the case of a power outage:
Prepare a simple emergency kit.
Keep phones and other devices fully charged.
Keep flashlights and batteries easily accessible.
If there is a power line down, stay away and call 911 immediately. Please report any trees in power lines to Roseville Electric at (916) 79-POWER. For additional safety tips or to report an outage, visit roseville.ca.us/outages.
Although our creeks will be higher than normal, our creek level modeling does not anticipate any major flooding in Roseville from the impending storms. There may be some standing water in low-lying parks and trails. This is not unusual and is not cause for concern. Roseville creek levels can be monitored at roseville.ca.us/stream.
City crews are also on standby to respond to localized street flooding and road hazards. To report these call Roseville Public Works at (916) 774-5790 during normal business hours. After hours or on weekends, call (916) 774-5000 x 1.
The City, along with FEMA, have invested $32 million since the 1980s to improve flood control infrastructure. This includes stream widening, adding flood walls and stormwater bypass channels, and performing annual stream maintenance. These efforts mean Roseville holds the nation’s highest FEMA flood protection rating. Less than 7% of the city is within a floodplain, most of which is undeveloped open space.
