The rain is causing everything from road closures, power outages and now a decrease in blood donations.
A spokesperson for San Luis Obispo United Blood Services said with the recent rainy weather blood donations are down for this week as folks opt to stay indoors.
The dip in donations comes at a time when blood levels are already low, especially for types O- , A- , and A+.
Folks are reminded, rain or shine, blood is still needed.
To learn how to donate, visit http://www.unitedbloodservices.org/.
Also, coming up the first of four blood drives hosted by the city of Santa Maria this year will be from noon to 5 p.m. on Thursday, January 28, in the parking lot between the lawn bowling green and Paul Nelson Aquatics Center along South McClelland Street.
The public is invited to sign up and join city and county employees to donate blood to United Blood Services.
All donors will receive a 4-ounce box of assorted See's chocolates.
