Flash flooding is a risk following a wildfire. National Weather Service weather radios can be purchased at minimal cost to help you be alerted of flash flood advisories, watches, and warnings. Know your terms:

  • Flash flood WATCH. Flooding MAY happen. Stay aware of the weather and your surroundings.
  • Flash flood ADVISORY. Minor flooding is LIKELY. You may receive a warning from the sheriff’s department or Everbridge (you must sign up for Everbridge to receive these warnings). Pay attention to warnings.
  • Flash Flood WARNING. Flooding is IMMINENT or OCCURRING. You will be notified by authorities if evacuation is necessary. Stay out of low-lying areas.
