[ARCHIVED] Preparing for Rain Storms

SONORA, CA (September 20, 2013) – The Rim Fire started on August 17 and burned in steep, rugged canyons on the Stanislaus National Forest and the Yosemite National Park. The wildfire increased the potential for increased flooding, mud and debris flows that could impact ranches, structures, roads, and other infrastructure within, adjacent to, and downstream from the burned area. Winter in the Sierra Nevada region can bring heavy rain storms and residents and visitors should remain alert to possible flooding when travelling along roads downstream from the burned area of the Rim Fire.
