September 1 Storm Event (Thermal)
A significant storm brought heavy rains to Riverside County on September 1, 2023. The eastern Coachella Valley was hit especially hard. Rainfall caused flooding in and around the Lawson Dump and three mobile home parks; San Jose Mobile Home Park, Vargus Mobile Home Park and the Gamez Mobile Home Park.
Due to concerns about possible contamination of hazardous materials in the floodwaters, an Evacuation Warning was issued on Saturday, September 2, 2023 due to the possible danger to people and pets.
An Evacuation Shelter is available at the Galilee Center located at 66101 Hammond Rd, Mecca, CA 92254. Anyone requiring transportation, please call 2-1-1.
Public safety officials have determined that residents and pets may have been exposed to possible chemicals in floodwaters, which may include runoff from the former Lawson Dump site. If you are in the affected area of Pierce, 68th, 70th Ave., and the White Water River you should avoid contact with rainwater and runoff until further notice.
The county is testing the water to help determine if there are chemicals present that may be harmful to humans or pets. The test results may take several days.]
If you were exposed to the rainwater runoff and are feeling ill, contact your primary care physician.
