You have probably heard by now that Hurricane Hilary has strengthened into a Category 4 storm with winds over 130 mph, and it looks like it's headed straight for Southern California, potentially bringing heavy rain, high surf, significant wind, and possible flooding, according to forecasts from the National Hurricane Center. At this time, it looks like there’s a chance of showers on Saturday but the major storm may hit us on Sunday night through Monday morning. Assemblyman Isaac Bryan, District 55 (representing most of UNNC), has shared: “The Ready LA County website, https://ready.lacounty.gov/Rain/, has many resources to help residents prepare for and stay safe during rainy weather. Residents are urged to take precaution and stay updated by signing up for emergency alerts.” In addition, “Alert LA County” is a free mass emergency notification system for Los Angeles County residents and businesses. Alert LA County sends shelter-in-place instructions, evacuation and other emergency messages. It has accessibility features for people with disabilities and others with access and functional needs and you can select your preferred language for notifications.
