Here are today’s top five stories in Oceanside-Camp Pendleton:

  1. A severe thunderstorm warning was issued Wednesday for parts of southeastern San Diego County. The National Weather Service in San Diego has issued a severe thunderstorm warning that includes: 60 mph wind gusts and quarter hail expected. For your protection, go to an inner room on the lowest floor of a building. Heavy rainfall can occur with this storm and can lead to flash flooding. Do not drive your vehicle through flooded roads. Hail damage to vehicles is expected. Expect wind damage to roofs, siding and trees. For updates and locations that will experience life-threatening thunderstorms, check with the National Weather Service. (County of San Diego)
  2. The Oceanside Harbor and Beaches Advisory Committee has approved a plan to let lifeguards take over security services currently being handled by the police in the Oceanside Harbor. The city’s fire department and police have been working with port officials on the proposed change since 2020 as a way to save money and provide better service to boaters, businesses and more than 900 slip rentals in the port and marina. The plan will go to Oceanside City Council for approval on September 28. If approved, the plan would come into effect in 2023. (San Diego Union Tribune)
  3. Oceanside city treasurer saga has taken a new turn with questions about Oceanside Treasury Manager Steve Hodges, the employee accused of alleged wrongdoing by elected city treasurer Victor Roy. Public records show that Hodges, who is charged with managing Oceanside’s $500 million investment portfolio, was previously convicted of felony burglary for stealing the city’s credit card and thousands of dollars from Home Depot as part of a gift card scam. as a teenager. Hodges is still employed but has plans to step down later this year, city officials said. (Voice of San Diego)
  4. Northern San Diego County’s San Diego Zoo Safari Park has welcomed a baby southern white rhinoceros. The male calf was born on August 6 at the Nikita Kahn Rhino Rescue Center in the park in Escondido. The calf was sired by natural breeding and was born to first time dam Livia and sire J Gregory. Safari Park staff said the calf is “healthy, confident and full of energy”.
