With several more days of steady rain predicted for this week, the County has opened the Emergency Operations Center to deal with any storm related problems. County officials say the Center will be open through Friday.

IID reported two outages in the Coachella area, with one of those outages shutting down Coachella City Hall.

"We know our region is at risk for flooding and mudslides even when a storm is not severe, so we want to be ready," said Board of Supervisors Chairman John J. Benoit. "We are watching areas that have had problems in the past and we want residents to remember that keeping your family safe doesn't just happen. You must prepare before the heavy rain arrives."
