Hayward weather bulletin through Sunday, March 12
With rain and episodes of gusty winds in the forecast through Sunday, residents are encouraged to remain vigilant about potential flooding and use caution on roads and highways.
Pre-filled sandbags are available for community members who reside in the City of Hayward to pick up at 16 Barnes Court while supplies last—up to six per household and 10 for local business. A self-fill sandbag station also is available at the same location 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
To report urgent instances of flooding, residents should call the Hayward Streets Division weekdays between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. at (510) 881-7745. After 3 p.m. up until 7 a.m., contact the Hayward Police Department non-emergency line at (510) 293-7000.
Calling 9-1-1 should be reserved only for medical emergencies or to report an urgent or emergency public health or safety risk.
To report downed or dangling power lines, call 9-1-1 immediately and then Pacific Gas & Electric Co. (PG&E) at (800) 743-5000. Stay away from and don’t touch downed or dangling power lines.
As always, Hayward police, fire, emergency medical and maintenance services personnel actively monitor and prioritizing calls for service. Responses to some less urgent matters may take longer than usual during storm-related periods of high call volume.
