Today, the City of San Diego lifted the evacuation warning that was issued to prepare residents in flood-prone areas for a potential evacuation order due to heavy rain forecasted for Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 5 and 6. The warning was issued to residents who live in Southcrest, Mountain View, Encanto, San Ysidro, Sorrento Valley and Mission Valley. 

With the unusual frequency and intensity of storms hitting the City of San Diego recently, residents are encouraged to remain prepared and vigilant through the remainder of the rainy season. The City will continue to monitor weather conditions and advise residents of necessary preparations, as needed.  
The City’s temporary shelter at the Balboa Park Municipal Gym, which has provided a safe, dry place for impacted residents to stay, remains open to assist those who have been displaced by the recent storms.  

Additionally, the Local Assistance Center (LAC), located at the Mountain View Community Recreation Center, 641 S. Boundary St., reopened today and will be open until 7 p.m. The LAC will resume normal operational hours 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. tomorrow.  

The United Taxi Workers of San Diego continues to help impacted residents get to the temporary shelter and LAC at no charge. To schedule a ride, residents should call 619-280-4444 or download the Ride United (passenger) application on your mobile phone. Residents should then provide their pick-up location address and select “Balboa Park Municipal Gym” or “Mountain View Community Recreation Center” as their drop-off location.
