Local stores see increase in storm prep supply sales

Local hardware and garden supply stores are selling more sandbags and other erosion control items as another storm makes its way toward the Central Coast.

The coming weekend storm follows a storm that dumped inches of rain on the Central Coast Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

“The rain was hitting the window and the rain was blowing right into it,” said Greg Christensen, San Luis Obispo resident.

“Around 2 a.m. I’d say, I heard some rustling and stuff going on outside,” said Michael Goldfeder, San Luis Obispo resident.

Goldfelder says he’s new to the area and not familiar with what storms can bring to San Luis Obispo.

“So far, all I’ve done is put towels under my doors so no potential water comes in,” Goldfeder said. “I should probably look into this more and prepare and take it a lot more seriously now that I know what’s coming.”
