Flash Flood Warning for Solano and Yolo Counties

(KRON/BCN) — A flash flood warning is in effect until 7 p.m. Sunday for northwestern Solano County and southwestern Yolo County, National Weather Service officials in Sacramento said.

The officials said thunderstorms producing heavy rain are occurring over the Wragg Fire burn scar to the west and southwest of Winters near Lake Berryessa, according to Doppler Radar at 3:54 p.m.

Flash floods and debris flows are expected shortly, NWS officials said. The flows may consist of rock, mud, vegetation and other loose material, according to NWS officials.

The officials said the rain may dislodge ash and debris from the Wragg Fire.

NWS officials are urging residents to move to higher ground immediately and move away from recently burned areas.

Life threatening flooding of roads, creeks and dry arroyos is likely, NWS officials said.

The rain will probably trigger debris flows, rockslides and mudslides in steep terrain, according to NWS officials.
