City Declares State of Emergency Due to Rain Storm Event

Emergency Dec 225

The City of Coronado announced a State of Emergency due to the extreme rainfall and flash flooding on Monday evening, January 22, 2024. The City Council will ratify the State of Emergency at an upcoming meeting. The declaration is a prerequisite for requesting state or federal assistance.

Earlier today, the City of Coronado activated its Emergency Operations Center which will remain open through the night. Additionally, an emergency shelter was activated at the Community Center, 1845 Strand Way. The City's emergency responders and road and maintenance crews continue to address the storm's impacts on the community and the City's public facilities and will work through the night, when needed.

Because the City’s sewer system had been severely impacted by the heavy rains earlier today, City crews began diligently working on repairs. Residents in the Country Club area (west of Alameda Blvd to Naval Base San Diego, north of 10th St/Alder St and south of 6th St.) are being asked to stop flushing toilets, running sinks, showers, and faucets, or any activity that discharges into the sewer system. The City anticipates this action will continue for at least 24 hours. Additionally, all Coronado residents are being asked to reduce using their drains in the to help the sewer system catch up. This does not affect the drinking water supply.
