Flash Flood Watch: Please be on special alert regarding the chance of flash floods. As rainwater moves across dry solid ground it can collect soil, sediment, and debris and grow into a stream of floodwaters. This can cause more significant damage; please be on guard for flooding in all areas downstream and along our desert washes (especially those areas affected by the Ocotillo and East Desert Fires which occurred last summer).
If you approach a flooded wash DO NOT CROSS. If you witness flooding in your area move to higher ground to be safe. For emergencies dial 911.
