With wet weather and high surf expected through the weekend, some people living in Oceano are not taking any chances. The area experienced serious flooding back in December, and now residents are taking precautions to keep it from happening again.
Steven Ehens lives on Security Court, one of the hardest hit streets back in December. He's hoping sand bags and water pumps will be enough to be get through the weekend.
"It depends how much we get and how high Arroyo Grande Creek gets because those flap gates won't drain if Arroyo Grande Creek's high, and we'll be sitting in a big old puddle basically," Ehens said.
Deputy Director of San Luis Obispo County Public Works Dave Flynn says crews have been preparing for the next round of wet weather since last month. He also says the flap gates in Oceano are silt-free and in working order.
"That's what we'll be looking at, the water levels in the Arroyo Grande Channel in combination with the high tides," Flynn said.
