Stay Away From Burned Areas in Coming Rain, Warns Weather Service
As of 5:48 p.m., the National Weather Service out of Eureka is urging people to stay away from areas burned during this summer’s massive fires.
“[The] rain that went through Pepperwood earlier is moving toward some of the summer wildfire burn scars,” warns the Weather Service’s Facebook page. (See embedded post below.) “This may create debris flows if the rain rates are high enough…For your safety, remain away from any former burn areas during times of heavy rain.”
