The rain and winds are here, and so are we! The City of Palos Verdes Estates activated its Emergency Operations Center at its lowest level (Level 3). We are monitoring the storm and can report no significant weather incidents as of this post.

As a reminder, report all storm-related issues and emergencies to the Police Department by calling (310) 378-4211.




As you may already know…
a RAIN STORM is coming to Palos Verdes Estates!

Forecasts are for between 3 to 6 inches of rain to fall through Saturday morning, with winds 25 to 35 mph and gusting up to 50 mph.

  • Do not park in front of storm drain inlets or on top of storm drain grates. If possible, park in a garage or driveway away from trees.
  • Check your house. Clear your outdoor drains and gutters of any leaves, dirt or debris. Secure trash, recycling bins and any other items that have the potential of blowing or floating away. Weakened trees should be inspected by an arborist.
  • Use sandbags. Sandbags can be utilized to help protect your home and property before a storm to divert flows. Sand and sandbags are available to residents at the sandbag station located next to the Fire Department at 340 Palos Verdes Drive West (west side of City Hall). If residents need more than 10-15 bags, please make arrangements with a home supply store.
  • Don’t risk your life. During significant storm events, avoid waterways, flood control channels and the ocean, which can all rapidly swell and become extremely dangerous. NO PLACE outside with heavy torrential rain is safe!
