El Niño: Are You Ready?

Whether you’re a Carlsbad resident or doing business in the city, the message is the same: 2016 is an El Niño year. That means that we can expect prolonged periods of heavy rain, which can cause:

  • Flooding
  • Mudslides
  • Sink holes
  • Prolonged power outages
  • Water and sewer service interruptions
  • Dangerous driving conditions

The City of Carlsbad has already taken steps to help keep our community safe. To be truly prepared, we need residents to get ready too.
