Camp Fire burn area, 1 to 2 inches of rain has fallen during the

* Flooding is occurring with several flooded roads and stranded
motorists being reported including highway 99 being closed. An
evacuation order has been issued for Honey Run road from the 200
block of Skyway including Horse Run Lane. Excessive rainfall over
the burn scar are resulting in debris flows moving in and near the
burn area. The debris flows can consist of rock, mud, vegetation
and other loose materials.
Streams flowing out of the burn area such as Butte Creek, Little
Chico Creek, Clear Creek and Dry Creek will likely cause flooding
outside of the burn area near Chico and Durham.

Instruction: This is a dangerous situation. Persons within the Camp Fire Burn
Area need to be alert for the potential of mud and debris flows.
These flows could impact area roadways, hill sides, and local
streams and creeks. If you observe movement of soils, debris, or
large amounts of water, you should move to higher ground
immediately. Do not drive through water flowing across roadways.

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