Flood preps underway in Oceano

With the heavy storms moving in this weekend people in Oceano are making sure they are prepared.

Sandbags and water pumps outline homes along Security Court in Oceano. The area sits near the Arroyo Grande Creek and it is prone to severe flooding.

Back in December residents there saw thigh-high flood waters, many had to be evacuated. While this weekend's rain is not expected to be that intense people living there are not taking any chances.

"We're getting pretty practiced at this so they stack up pretty quick and hopefully we can save it," said Steve Ehens, who lives in Oceano. "We just got the carpet in so we're going to try real hard to keep that dry this time."
