Flash Flood Warning for Camp Fire Area

The National Weather Service has now issued a Flash Flood WARNING for the Camp Fire burn scars and impact areas for today, January 20th until 5:45 pm. If you are in the Camp Fire burn scar or impact area you may be at a high risk of debris flows and flash flooding due to heavy rain.

A Flash Flood WARNING indicates that flash flooding is occurring, or is imminent. Flash flooding is a dangerous and life threatening situation. Due to the dynamic nature of debris flow and flash flood events, residents should not wait for an evacuation order to take action.

In the event that generalized flooding conditions exist at the time of the Flash Flood WARNING, the warning area may be expanded to cover additional locations downstream of the fire perimeter.

If you are in the impacted area or are located near a waterway downstream from the impacted area, you should be prepared to immediately evacuate to high ground in the event of heavy rainfall, an evacuation notice, or any evidence of soil instability in your area.

Call 911 if you see any evidence of soil instability or debris flow in your localized area.

Evacuation Warning

An Evacuation Warning for the community of Pulga due to potential for flooding, debris flow and soil instability in the area. This warning is for today, January 20 until 9:00 pm. Residents in this area should evacuate to high ground as soon as possible.

Attention CalFresh Recipients

CalFresh LogoYour February 2019 CalFresh benefits may post to your EBT account early! Due to the Federal Government shut-down, if your case is eligible to February 2019 CalFresh benefits you may receive your benefits early. If you do not get your February CalFresh benefits early, and you are still eligible to CalFresh, you will receive your February benefits on your regularly scheduled day (the first ten days of February). Please budget these CalFresh benefits carefully because your next monthly benefits will not be available until March. 

¡Sus benefi cios de Febrero 2019 de CalFresh pueden estar disponibles en su cuenta de EBT temprano! Debido al cierre del gobierno federal, si su caso es elegible para recibir benefi cios de CalFresh durante el mes de febrero de 2019, usted podría recibir sus benefi cios temprano. Si no recibe sus benefi cios de Febrero temprano y aun es elegible para CalFresh, usted recibirá sus benefi cios en el día que regularmente los recibe (durante los primeros 10 días de Febrero).
