The county of San Diego and Cal Fire are offering sandbags to residents and businesses in unincorporated areas as another round
of storms prepares to hit the region on New Year's Eve, with the storm expected to bring heavy rain and high winds.
And, after the New Year's storm, weather forecasters say more rain and wind may arrive in the middle of next week.
To forestall any potential flooding or soil erosion, the county is urging people in unincorporated areas to stop by one of several fire stations to fill sandbags or get bags. Residents are urged to call ahead to check the hours of operation of fire stations and to see if supplies are still available, and to bring their own shovels to fill sandbags.
