Flash Flood Warning issued for Woolsey and Hill Fire burn scars

The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Warning for the Woolsey and Hill Burn Areas in East central Ventura County and West Los Angeles County until 10:45 a.m.

Doppler radar and rain gages indicated heavy rain across the warned area. Rainfall rates were around a third of an inch in 30 minutes.

Flash flooding and limited debris flows are expected to begin shortly, according to the National Weather Service. Some locations in the warned area include: Malibu Canyon and Los Virgenes Roads, Kanan Dume Road in the Santa Monica Mountains and Pacific Coast Highway north of Malibu.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS: A Flash Flood Warning for a recent burn area means that flooding and debris flows are imminent or occurring. Residents living in or immediately downstream should shelter in place and move to a second story or the highest location in your home to stay out of the path of fast-moving water and debris flows.
