Orange County is preparing for Hurricane Hilary
Hurricane Hilary is approaching Southern California. Strong winds and intense rainfall can expect Orange County this weekend as well.
According to the U.S. National Weather Service, having reached the coast of Southern California, the elements will weaken. However, in the form of a tropical storm will be active until Monday inclusive. Its consequences can be felt in Los Angeles and Orange County. Strong high speed winds (30 to 50 miles per hour) and significant rainfall of 2 to 10 inches, depending on the region, are expected.
"The flow of moisture moving ahead of 'Hilary' will lead to increased monsoon moisture and the potential for flooding and flash flooding in the Southwest. "Hilary" is expected to move into southern California as a tropical storm late in the weekend. The heaviest rainfall and intense downpours will occur Sunday and Monday," National Weather Service.
Given the forecasts, the regional authorities are actively preparing for the possible consequences of Hurricane Hilary. Residents are urged to take safety measures and prepare for possible bad weather. In connection with the high risk of flooding, civil protection services and rescuers provide recommendations and instructions for citizens:
- Clean drains to prevent water buildup.
- Avoid walking or driving through flooded areas.
- Keep emergency supplies, including water, food, and medications, in an easily accessible location.
- Charge your important electronics and keep backup batteries on hand.
- Adhere to local authorities and evacuation orders if necessary.
It is important to follow the advice of the authorities. And respond in a timely manner to warning and evacuation measures if such a need arises.
At the same time, a number of Orange County events are also being canceled due to the threat of tropical storm conditions. For example, Irvine officials announced the cancellation of Saturday's Sizzlin' Summer Concert at Mike Ward Community Park and the Splash-in Movie and Recreation Swim at the William J. Woollett Aquatics Center. The decision was made for safety reasons.
