If you live or work in Wofford Heights or Pala Ranches, the National Weather Service predicts a very wet storm will impact Kern County, beginning on Sunday October 24th through Monday, October 25th.
Areas downslope or adjacent to drainages below the French Fire burn scar may be subject to mud and debris flows.
Your Kern County emergency authorities urge residents in these areas to be alert and remain aware of your surroundings. You are urged to closely monitor and anticipate changing conditions in your area and be prepared to move quickly to a place of safety, if necessary.
Avoid entering the path of the flow as water and mud flows are deceivingly powerful.
