Chino- This past weekend’s rain storm was something we haven’t seen in a long time! Hail came in covering the streets looking like snow. The amount of rain caused many streets to flood, school closed, as well as the City of Chino urging residents to shelter in place.

On January 22, the Cal Aero Preserve sent a message to the parents stating, “Out of an abundance of caution, Superintendent Wayne M. Joseph has determined, in conversation with the City of Chino and the Chino Police Department, to cancel classes at Cal Aero Preserve Academy on Monday, January 23, 2017. Classes will resume on Tuesday, January 24, 2017.”

The City of Chino Police Department posted a Community Emergency alert that stated, “Due to excessive flooding in the region, we are urging residents to shelter in place until further notice. The National Weather Service has forecasted continuous rainfall and flooding throughout the evening and into the morning in San Bernardino County. Specifically in Chino, there are limited routes through The Preserve area. Our neighboring communities are also experiencing flooding and have roads closed as well. Please be advised, it is best to remain in place and avoid all roads. City crews are monitoring 24/7 and will notify you when the roads are safe to travel.
