widespread heavy rain across the warned area of Orange County and

flooding which will be dangerous to vehicles and threaten properties in
low lying areas. There is also a good possibility of debris flows and
land slides.

The debris flow can consist of rock, mud, vegetation and other loose
materials.

Anaheim, Santa Ana, Riverside, Irvine, San Bernardino, Fontana,
Moreno Valley, Huntington Beach, Garden Grove, Ontario, Corona,
Orange, Fullerton, Costa Mesa and Temecula.

Excessive rainfall over the Blue Cut burn scar will likely result in
debris flow moving through the Cajon drainage. The debris flow can consist
of rock, mud, vegetation and other loose materials.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Have a plan to move to higher ground. Act quickly to protect your life.
Water is deeper than it appears on roadways and will be moving swiftly.
