As the third storm begins to hit the Southland, Long Beach and other areas are still recovering from three days of rain. Yesterday, harbor cities and neighborhoods got hit hard, with Long Beach receiving plenty of rain and flooding, whether it be on city streets or the 710 Freeway. If you're a resident, remember there are free sandbags and sand available via the city. Then, once the storms pass, it will be time to clean up and possibly look at the success of a new (and still uncompleted) drain project in West Long Beach that kept a traditionally flooded neighborhood relatively dry.
