The rainy season is upon us again, and the risk of catastrophic floods exists, even in a drought. In fact, the risk of flooding increases when California is suffering the effects of severe drought.

Dry soils from multi-year droughts create perfect conditions for dangerous flash floods. Drought or no drought, heavy downpours often lead to dangerous flooding conditions. Furthermore, the recent uptick in fires the last couple years adds another layer of risk: dangerous landslides and debris flows can rush down fire scarred hillsides.

Know your risk and “Flood Prepare California!” Look up your address on this website from the California Office of Emergency Services.
