The rainfall, which at times can be heavy, can cause flooding to several roadways sometimes even causing damage to already eroding roads. For those affected by the recent fires the vegetation in many cases has been widely burned away in large areas. Vegetation is what helps water to absorb and the lack of this vegetation causes increased flooding and mudflow for a number of years.
San Bernardino County officials said that they are prepared for these instances of flooding and residents have been given instructions on how to prepare for the potential flooding. Those directly affected by these fires or are located downstream of the burn areas are at the highest risk, county officials stressed.
Planning ahead will provide the best defense against these mudflows and floods. The San Bernardino County Fire Department offers free sandbags to those who feel they are at risk of flood. They also have tips to help you plan ahead so you can protect your home, property, and your family.For late-breaking news, follow 24/7 Headline News on our Los Angeles County Facebook group, Riverside County Facebook group, Coachella Valley News group, US News group, Victor Valley/Inland Empire Facebook group.
