Be prepared – rain is on the way!

A storm will affect our region this week. Rain is forecast in Corona and Riverside County. 

With the expectation of heavy rain, it is important to remember areas within the 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. Those living in this area should follow city information and think about what to do should they be asked to leave their homes. 

Based off predicted rainfall amounts and the duration of time in which it will occur, the National Weather Service (NWS) may issue a Flash Flood Warning. Flash Flood Warnings will be given via television, radio and wireless emergency alerts if your device is compatible. In the event a Flash Flood Warning is issued for the Canyon Fire burn area, evacuation orders may be given. If you are told to evacuate, please adhere to these orders, as they are given to ensure your safety.

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!

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