INCIDENT SUMMARY

2024 Winter Storms Information

The next round of rain is anticipated to arrive in our area on Wednesday. Residents are advised to monitor local forecasts from the National Weather Service for additional information and updates.

Although the precipitation totals from this weekend’s storm were not large, soils throughout the county are already well saturated – meaning they have less ability to absorb additional water. Minor flooding is possible during additional storm events, and residents should remain aware of the potential for downed trees and power lines. Additionally, rock falls and minor debris flows can be expected to continue to occur throughout the county – even when it is not raining.  

IF YOU ARE CONCERNED THAT UNSAFE CONDITIONS EXIST, LEAVE THE AREA

  • If you have concerns for your home and safety, be proactive! DO NOT WAIT to receive an official evacuation notification to leave!
  • Residents with limited road access or that reside in previously impacted areas may become isolated during future storms.
  • Residents near hillside areas that may be vulnerable to land movement, such as mud or debris flows, should remain vigilant to changes in local conditions.
  • Residents in areas with known geologic hazards, such as La Conchita, should exercise due diligence in monitoring local conditions and taking early action to evacuate during periods of increased risk. Visit our La Conchita Community Information Page for additional information.
  • Be prepared to leave, seek high ground, or shelter in-place before roads, creeks and waterways are flowing.
  • If conditions are resulting in an immediate danger to your life safety, and you require assistance evacuating, call 9-1-1.
