EL NINO PREDICTION FOR WINTER
The National and State weather experts are still predicting a strong El Nino weather conditions for California this winter. The graphic shows what happens with storm tracks in El Nino conditions along what is known as the Southern Branch of El Nino. Winter storms for much of California, can be more intense and be very wet or even very normal rainfall El Nino conditions can also be stormy without above average rainfall. What is likely to occur is uncertain but clearly stormy winter days are ahead with strong winds, blustery days and cooler nights with or without lots of rainfall. Water conservation is an important measure, even with the predicted conditions. What can I do if there is heavy rainfall and strong winds is a natural question. Consider doing these protective steps:
First— INSPECT your home for tree branches that overhang your home or roof and walls. Trim trees and any vegetation overhanging your home or roof. Drought conditions may have caused some trees to be stressed and drier which can break or overturn in strong winds or heavy rains.
Second—CONSIDER using some rain barrels to catch and store water for landscape irrigation when dry and hot weather returns. It saves water for a beneficial use and costs nothing for you.
Third—BE READY--If your home is in flood prone location then stockpile some ready made sand bags to protect your property as much as possible. The District will make available sand bags and sand for flood emergencies. If flooding causes an immediate threat to life then call 911 for help..
If you find a downed electric line, stay away and call 911 for assistance and warn everyone to stay away. DON’T TOUCH OR TRY TO MOVE A POWER LINE OR STAND TOO CLOSE. District Fire Department will respond immediately, if you call 911 and report a downed power line.The Board did not take action regarding a Memorandum of Understanding Agreement with San Luis Obispo County Employees Association for represented employees of the District.
The Board also discussed and continued a request for setting up an initial investment portfolio to be managed by investment management firm of Cantella & Company, a licensed investment management firm chosen by the District Board. A competitive process was used in selecting the firm.
