The National Weather Service in Los Angeles/Oxnard has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for recent burn areas across a portion of
southwest California.

* From late Tuesday afternoon through Thursday afternoon

* Rainfall rates up to 0.6 inches per hour are possible late
Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning with rates likely
increasing to 0.75 inches per hour or higher at times Wednesday
afternoon through Thursday afternoon.

* Rainfall of this intensity can produce dangerous mud and debris
flows near recent burn areas.


Flash flooding and debris flows will be a particular threat in
and below the recently burned areas.

to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

areas are urged to take the steps necessary to protect their
property. Persons in the watch area should remain alert and
follow directions of emergency preparedness officials.
