BE STORM READY
HOLY AND CRANSTON STORM READY INFORMATION
HOLY AND CRANSTON BURN AREAS:
There are no current evacuation warnings (voluntary) or mandatory evacuations orders
for either the Holy or Cranston Burn Areas.
For more information on the dangers of debris flows, please scroll down below.
The Riverside County Transportation Department has opened all previous road closures
in the Holy Burn Area. For up-to-date information on road closures, visit
Please remember that thunderstorms are unpredictable and can occur without warning. Officials will provide warning if possible, but may only be able to alert the public with just a few minutes' notice for evacuations. It is critical that residents living in recently burned areas remain vigilant and take personal responsibility for their surroundings.
Debris flows are deadly, fast-moving landslides. There is also a risk of flooding, mudflow, rock fall and other landslides during and immediately after rain.
POST WILDFIRE RISK & EVACUATION 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.
