Big Bear City, CA, September 7, 2014 – A Flash Flood Watch continues through Monday for local mountains, deserts and inland valleys. The main threat of flooding will be in steep canyons and in foothills in the afternoons and evenings.
To help ensure public safety, forest officials have temporarily closed recreation areas near Forest Falls through Monday night.
The public is reminded to avoid crossing fast-flowing water either on foot or in a vehicle, and to watch out for falling rocks and debris along Highways 18, 330 and 38. A boulder on Highway 38 scraped open a vehicle’s oil pan Sunday morning, causing a minor oil spill and a traffic hazard.
