With the National Weather Service predicting more rain this week and weekend, crime prevention deputies from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station on Tuesday urged homeless people living in the Santa Clara River bed or other local open space to seek shelter.
Here’s more of the story from the station’s social media:
“The continuous outreach efforts are conducted periodically by Crime Prevention Unit deputies, especially when weather conditions transform the wash into a hazardous place to be.
“Two individuals were cited (Tuesday) morning for illegal camping in the open space area.
“The ‘campers’ admitted that they knew other resources were available but they wanted ‘to live like this.’
“This kind of living is not okay, and deemed unsanitary due to the lack of proper restroom facilities and trash disposal. Plus, combined with cold weather and rain, we want to see everyone in proper shelter keeping safe and dry.”
The National Weather Service predicts a 30 percent chance of rain Tuesday night, and a 20 percent chance Wednesday morning. Rain is not expected again until Friday night, with more rain predicted through the weekend.
High temperatures will range from the low-to-mid 60s, with nighttime lows in the upper 40s.
