BE STORM READY
HOLY AND CRANSTON STORM READY INFORMATION
Weather update, Oct. 12, for both the Holy and Cranston areas:
Riverside County public safety officials are monitoring the weather over the Cranston and Holy burn areas expected this evening and Saturday. At this time based on National Weather Service reports, it doesn't appear that rainfall will be sufficient to cause debris flows. Because weather conditions may change, Riverside County will continue to monitor weather impacts.
Residents may see and smell ash or dead vegetation during and after rain.
As always, residents are urged to remain vigilant and take personal responsibility for their safety.
POST WILDFIRE RISK MAPS
County geologists, flood control experts, and other partners from Federal and State agencies made maps to show neighborhoods at risk from flash floods, debris flows, mud flows, falling rock and other landslides. These dangers can continue during storms for several years, until burned hillsides recover. In these risk maps, every colored area is dangerous.
Click on the map below on the left, to see risk areas after the Holy Fire. Click on the map below on the right, to see risk areas after the Cranston Fire.
- Blue areas of the map indicate areas that are at risk for flooding, mud and debris flows. Impacts to these areas may include roads that may become impassible and deadly, as well as disrupted or destroyed utilities.
When dangerous storms approach, these risk maps will also show areas under evacuation warnings and orders:
- Yellow means a zone is currently under evacuation warning (voluntary).
- Red means a zone is currently under a mandatory evacuation order.
During evacuation warnings and orders, you should leave immediately and seek shelter outside all evacuation zones.
If you are told to evacuate but you stay, you are risking your life. If you survive the storm, you could be isolated and trapped without help for many days, with roads impassible and utilities disrupted or destroyed.
