Several Streets Closed Due to Flooding, Rockslides, and Mudslides

Several Streets Closed Due to Flooding, Rockslides, and Mudslides

Flooding, mudslides, and rockslides have caused numerous roads in the Inland Empire to be closed on Thursday, February 14, 2018. CalTrans reminds drivers to “turn around, don’t drown”, meaning that it is better to use an alternate route rather than attempting to cross water. FEMA estimates that 6” of water can cause loss of control and can cause a vehicle to stall. Also, only a foot of water can cause many vehicles to float and two feet of moving water can carry most vehicles including SUVs and pickups.
