to produce multiple hours of heavy rainfall through early Monday
morning.

As of 11 pm, 1 to 2 inches of rainfall have already fallen. Rainfall
rates are expected to increase through 2 am which will exacerbate
runoff conditions across area burn scars and result in debris flows
moving through burn scars on the eastern Caldor, Tamarack, Numbers,
Slink, Mountain View, and Boot wildfire areas. These debris flows
will consist of rock, mud, vegetation and other loose materials.

HAZARD...Life threatening flash flooding. Thunderstorms
producing flash flooding.

urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses.

* Some locations that will experience flash flooding include...

Alpine Village, Grover Hot Springs, Woodfords, Mesa Vista, Walker,
Meyers, Monitor Pass, Junction CA 89 And CA 4, Holbrook Junction,
Alpine County Airport, Indian Creek Reservoir, Junction U.S 395
And CA 89, Topaz Lake Campground, Indian Creek Campground, Turtle
Rock Campground and Markleeville.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Move away from recently burned areas. Life-threatening flooding of
creeks, roads, and normally dry stream beds is likely. The heavy
rains will likely trigger rockslides, mudslides and debris flows in
steep terrain, especially in and around these areas.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

Please report observed flooding to local emergency services or law
enforcement and request they pass this information to the National
Weather Service when you can do so safely.
