SAN DIEGO — From the horse races at Del Mar Racetrack to a Padres home game at Petco Park, several events have been canceled for the weekend as Hilary sweeps the region.

There are also some businesses that are choosing to close their doors out of precaution as torrential rain, high wind and flooding are deemed possible amid a Tropical Storm Watch for the region.

Beaches and parks

All city-run beaches and parks in San Diego will be closed both Sunday and Monday.

The California State Parks Department has closed all state beaches in San Diego County in anticipation of the incoming storm, including Carlsbad State Beach, Cardiff State Beach and the Torrey Pines State Beach. Anza-Borrego State Park has also been closed due to flooding concerns, according to the department.

Several National Parks will also be closed in San Diego County, including the Cleveland National Forest and Cabrillo National Monument in Point Loma. As of Saturday, Cabrillo will re-open Tuesday depending on damage and safety.

The Cleveland National Forest will remain closed this weekend through next week.


Most public transit services in the county will be operating reduced services on Sunday. A full list of impacts to transit can be found here.

Over 230 Sunday flights from San Diego International Airport have also been canceled as of 10 p.m. on Saturday due to tropical storm conditions preventing safe air travel, according to the flight tracking website FlightAware.

COASTER train service and Amtrak Pacific Surfliner has been temporarily suspended due to severe weather.
