It was standing-room-only Oct. 13 for a town hall, El Niño-preparedness meeting held at the Oak View Community Center. Approximately 300 locals showed up to learn about preparing for winter storms being forecast for the area.
The message they received was prepare now, be aware, stay informed, help your neighbors and follow any instructions from emergency personnel should you or your neighborhood be impacted.
