New Mud And Debris Flow Forecast For Burn Areas
The rain may seem light, but it's this steady, consistent drip that can trigger mudslides. As such, the county has issued a mud and debris flow forecast for all burn areas which occurred in the past three years.
That warning, from the county Department of Public Works, goes into effect from noon Monday through noon Tuesday. Any area that was in the burn area of a fire going back to May 2016 is under the forecast — you can see the full list, latest forecast and tips on mudflow protection and locations where sandbags are being distributed from Los Angeles County Public Works here.
