RE:                 Potential for Flash Floods and Rock Slides

Thunderstorms are currently forecast for the Eastern Sierra over the next four days, with the highest probability of thunderstorms on Sunday and Monday. Such storms can cause flash flooding and rock slides in burn areas across the county.  Residents, tourists and structures affected by recent fires are most at risk.  Those affected should seek higher ground outside of the burn areas through the duration and immediately following a storm cell.
