National Weather Service Flash Flood Warning 150 150 Sonoma County Emergency and Preparedness Information

This is a SoCo Alert Emergency message


Mensaje de emergencia en espanol mas abajo.

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for your area. This is a life threatening situation for anyone living in the fire burn scar areas or traveling on roads in the fire burn scar area. Be alert for possible danger due to erosion, debris flows, rock falls and land movement.

This is a dangerous situation. If you observe movement of soils, debris or large amounts of water, move to a safer location immediately. These flows could impact area roadways and hill sides, damage homes and could block local streams and creeks causing flooding. Do not try to cross flooded roadways or creeks. A debris flow of only a few inches deep can be powerful enough to move a vehicle off the road. If you are in a fire burn scar area, be alert to your surroundings.


Current weather conditions may cause power outages preventing additional notification. Monitor local radio stations for information in the event of power failure.


Este es un mensaje de emergencia de SoCoAlert.


El Servicio Meteorológico Nacional ha emitido una advertencia de inundación repentina para su área.
Esta es una situación que pone en peligro la vida de cualquier persona que viva en áreas quemadas o que viaje por las carreteras en las áreas quemadas.


Esté alerta al posible peligro debido a la erosión, los flujos de escombros, la caída de piedras y el movimiento de tierra.


Esta es una situación peligrosa. Si observa movimiento de tierra, escombros o grandes cantidades de agua, muévase de inmediato a un lugar más seguro. Estos flujos podrían afectar las carreteras en la área y las laderas, dañar las viviendas y bloquear los arroyos locales causando inundaciones. No intente cruzar caminos o arroyos inundados. Un flujo de escombros de solo unas pocas pulgadas de profundidad puede ser lo suficientemente poderoso como para mover un vehículo de la carretera. Si se encuentra en una zona quemada, este alerta a sus alrededores.


Las condiciones climáticas pueden causar cortes de electricidad que impidan notificaciones adicionales. Monitoree las estaciones de radio locales para obtener información en caso de corte de electricidad.
