Winter Storm Prompts Activation of Moreno Valley’s Emergency Operations Center

In response to numerous water rescues and road closures related to the winter storm, the City of Moreno Valley activated its Emergency Operations Center (E.O.C.) on December 22 at 8:32 a.m. Currently, over twenty City employees are working in the E.O.C. to address issues arising from the current weather conditions. Police, Fire, Public Works and other City Departments are working diligently to address situations as they arise.

A state of emergency has been proclaimed by Riverside County, which includes the City of Moreno Valley. This declaration will allow Moreno Valley to potentially recover City expenses related to the winter storm.
