may become impassable or become washed out. Residents should
be alert for rising waters on area streams with the
possibility of flooding.

Fire Burn area. Additional slides and debris are possible.


A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
