ALL EVACUATIONS LIFTED IN CANYON FIRE BURN SCAR AREA

 

CORONA, CA– The National Weather Service has released all flash flood warnings and watches in our area and all evacuations have been lifted.

The City of Corona has efforts underway to remove the mud from the roadways as well as from all of the pre-storm preparation areas such as debris basins, culverts, and other control methods, to prepare them for the next winter storm. These efforts will occur for several days.

It is important to remember that this, being the first winter storm, is not an indication of the ability of the Canyon Fire burn area to sustain itself in future storm events. The hillsides will remain more susceptible than normal to mudflow and flash flooding for several seasons.

Residents are reminded to use due diligence in preparing their properties for future rainstorms. Sand bags will remain available at Fire Station #5, 1200 Canyon Crest Drive, for residents of the Sierra Del Oro neighborhood, and will be placed at Santana Park as needed for residents Citywide.
