Be Storm Ready
The City of Roseville has implemented several flood control improvements making the threat of widespread flooding less likely. City Public Works crews continuously monitor creek levels and incoming storm models and will do so throughout the course of a storm. Roseville’s creek/stream gauges provide real—time information on our website allowing you to monitor creek levels also. Visit www.roseville.ca.us/streams for up-to-date information on streams.
Family Emergency Preparedness
Families should be ready for a disaster by preparing in advance and working together as a team. The Roseville Fire Department recommends you create a family disaster plan including a communication plan, disaster supplies kit, and an evacuation plan. Knowing what to do is your best protection and your responsibility. See the recommendations for a 72-Hour Emergency Supply Checklist.
During significant rain storms, street flooding can occur if there is too much water to move through the storm drain system or debris has blocked the drains. To report street flooding during regular business hours, call Roseville’s Street Maintenance Division at (916) 774-5790. For after hours, weekends and holidays, call the Police Department’s non-emergency number at (916) 774-5000.
Bike trails are subject to flooding during storm events and may be closed during storms; trail users are advised to use caution and abide by closures.

Downed Power Lines / Outages
Wet and windy weather can also damage overhead power lines. Roseville Electric crews are on standby to respond to power outages any time of day and during inclement weather conditions.

Roseville Electric customers can help minimize storm related power outages by properly storing lightweight outdoor furniture and accessories and removing outdoor debris to avoid those items being carried away into power lines by strong winds. Vvisit www.roseville.ca.us/outages for a list of power outage tips.
While City crews are prepared to respond to urgent storm calls, it’s important you are also prepared. Visit the Emergency Preparedness webpage for emergency preparedness tips.
