* Short bursts of high intensity rainfall could lead to additional
debris and mudflows in areas of steep terrain, as has occurred

especially at risk. Minor street flooding remains possible in
urban areas, especially if drainage is poor. Allow extra travel

terrain. Don't drive into high water or mud. You won't get out.
