El Niño Preparations & Awareness

In advance of the 2016 El Niño season, Loyola Law School's Campus Planning office has already made preparations:

  • Checked all campus building roofs for issues
  • Cleared debris from all drainage catch basins
  • Ordered new walkoff mats for the building entrances as needed
  • Ordered umbrella stands for classrooms
  • Stockpiled sandbags in garage
  • Planned to turn off lawn sprinklers when rain is predicted

See rain damage or flooding?

Report any damage or other flood-related issues to the LLS Security Office at 213-736-1121 (x1121 from a campus phone). 

Safety Measures

Never walk or drive through flooded water. Keep in mind that it only takes 6 inches of water to sweep you off your feet, and 12 inches of water to cause you to lose control of your car. Be prepared for a power outage. If you are outdoors, beware of falling debris, downed trees and powerlines, which should be reported to 9-1-1. You can check the forecast daily at the National Weather Service website
