BE STORM READY – Holy Fire & Canyon Fire Burn Area Preparedness

Post Date:11/27/2018 4:45 PM

FOR RESIDENTS NEAR THE HOLY FIRE BURN AREA

Thunderstorms are predicted for the Holy Fire burn area Thursday morning. The following zones are under a voluntary evacuation warning: Amorose, Alberhill, Glen Ivy A, Glen Eden, Grace, Horsethief A, Laguna A, Matri, McVicker A, Rice, Withrow A. People in these zones SHOULD GO NOW – this is the safest time to leave.

Please note, the boundaries of these evacuation zones have changed from previous evacuation warnings in the Holy burn area. It’s critical that residents look online at www.RivCoReady.org/StormReady to determine the zone in which they live and the status of that zone. 

A care and reception center is open at Temescal Canyon High School, located at 28755 El Toro Rd in Lake Elsinore.  

Debris flows can happen with little to no warning. As always, residents are urged to remain vigilant and take personal responsibility for their safety. Officials may only be able to alert the public with just a few minutes notice, or none at all. If your home is in an at-risk area, it is critical that you understand the seriousness of the situation and are always prepared. Please click on the maps below to find out if you live in an at-risk area.  

FOR CORONA RESIDENTS

Rainfall over the Canyon Fire burned areas is still expected in 48-72 hours, however, based on current weather predictions, it is not expected to cause debris flows. There are no current evacuation warnings (voluntary) or mandatory evacuation orders in place at this time.

It is important to remember areas within and downslope of the Canyon Fire burned areas have an increased risk of erosion, flash flooding and debris flows. When rainfall events are predicted, stay alert, and monitor information sources. 

Remember to Sign up for Emergency Notifications! The City of Corona has a local notification system that will send telephone notifications to resident and business during an emergency. Only land-lines are in the system. Register your cell phone number and select if you would like to receive an additional notification by email and/or text. Visit www.CoronaCA.gov/ENS to register!

Sandbags are available! In preparation for the upcoming storm, up to ten free pre-filled sandbags are available for Corona Residents at Santana Park. There are also sandbags at Fire Station #5 at Canyon Crest for residents of the Canyon Fire Burn Area. 

Remember when rainfall events are predicted regardless how large or small, stay vigilant as weather can change quickly.
