Get your sandbags! Get your sandbags! Get ready for the rain!
The National Weather Service warns of a strong series of storms to hit the Bay Area, starting this weekend and going into next week. Rain could start as early as tomorrow (Saturday), but more likely on Sunday, and continue through Friday. Heavy rain is expected on Wednesday and Thursday, "creating possible downed trees and power lines."
If you're in a vulnerable spot in Walnut Creek, here's where you can pick up sand bags. Each sandbag station is set up with sand, empty sandbags and shovels. It's a good idea to bring your own shovel if you can.
