San Diego issues flood evacuation warning for low-lying areas as storm looms

Source: ABC10 News

As Thursday’s storm approaches the San Diego area, an evacuation warning will be issued for people who live in the areas most impacted by the flooding from Jan. 22, Mayor Todd Gloria announced during a Wednesday afternoon press conference.

Gloria emphasized that this warning is voluntary in nature; however, should the city escalate it to an evacuation order, police officers would go door-to-door to tell people.

The mayor also announced during the press conference that a shelter is being established at Balboa Park’s Municipal Gym. The city will provide transportation to the shelter for those who need it.

As of 2 p.m., the city has not specified exact locations for the voluntary evacuation warning. The city did say the warning applies to low-lying areas that endured flooding on Jan. 22.
