Shooting, Fire and Now Soon To Come… RAIN

National Weather Service Bulletin November 20 2018

(Ventura County, Ca) As local residents face the aftermath of fire and burying loved ones, they must also prepare for something California needs, but just not right at this moment: Rain.

According to the National Weather Service (NWS), “A series of fronts and a strengthening jet stream will lead to an increase in precipitation chances for the western U.S. over the next couple of days. This will be a relief to fire-stricken areas of California, and help clear out Air Stagnation Advisories that are in effect across parts of the Northwest. However, hazardous conditions could be created as well. Heavy rain is possible in lower elevations in the West Coast. On Wednesday and Wednesday night, there is a Marginal Risk of excessive rainfall in parts of California, with embedded Slight Risks where the recent fires have created burn scars, which can flash flood quickly as water runs off.”

Ventura County emergency notifications have been sent to all residents affected by the recent fires warning of possible mudslides while offering sand bags to those closest to burned areas.

Fire stations in the affected communities have worked with residents to provide sand bags to those needing to defend against flash flooding.
