Be prepared for the upcoming weather conditions: Sandbags and Safety Tips

Heavy rainfall has affected many Bay Area roads with flooding and road closures.  More rainfall is expected this week, which is likely to keep the flood risk high.  Be prepared for possible flooding, downed trees, and other weather-related hazards caused on roadways and freeways. 

Newark residents and businesses, if you feel your home or business is threatened by flooding, the City has sand and sandbags available during business hours at the Newark Service Center located at 37440 Filbert Street.  Each resident may be issued up to ten (10) bags to protect their doorways if flood warnings are issued or if flooding is occurring in Newark.  Verification of residence and a signature will be required for issuance of the sandbags.  For more information about the storm season, flooding, and sandbags, please visit the City’s website at

Be prepared for possible power outages as well.  You can report or view power outages by visiting PG&E at  In the event of a power outage, be sure to keep freezers and refrigerator doors closed so your food stays cold.  You’ll want to also avoid using your gas stove to heat your home.  If you are using your gas stove at the time the power goes off, be sure to turn off your gas burner.  You’ll want to make sure that your mobile phone and portable power chargers/banks are fully charged and use battery-powered lights such as flashlights instead of candles, which pose a fire hazard.  Leave one light plugged in with the switch on so that you can tell when the power is restored.
