The priority is “keeping yourself out of harm’s way.”

Being prepared, as rain drops turn into a rainstorm Saturday night.

“The power may go out. Make sure you have flash lights, extra batteries,” said Jordan Scott, from California’s Emergency Management Agency.

And as those dark clouds roll in, residents at the Woodside apartments in Sacramento are hoping history doesn’t repeat itself.

“This is where the water flooded, years ago, back in 2006” one resident remembers. Neighbors and residents are hoping, the two-foot concrete wall that now wraps around the slough next to these apartments will prevent floods this time around.

Scott urges you to take your own health and safety in mind and “take steps in advance” when preparing for a storm.
