BUTTE COUNTY, Calif.- With more rain on the way today the National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch through this morning.

This could create a particularly dangerous situation in areas around the Camp, Carr and Delta Fires.

The Butte County Public Works Director Denis Schmidt says everyone living in or driving through the areas where wildfires have recently burned really need to be aware of the risk of flash floods today.

Across the North State, people are heeding the warning and preparing for the worst.

"They sent the back-hoe through our house and we have a berm that's pretty high, so we've had to pack and do all sorts of stuff, they went over our pipes and everything so the water will come to our house now,' said evacuee Saralyn Austin.

"We're selling a ton of generators, all of our rain equipment is wiped out, it goes as soon as we put it on the shelf," said Blaine Messick who works at Chico's Tractor Supply Co.

If you're up in Magalia, Concow or if you live in Shasta County around the Carr Fire burn scar, lookout for debris flow.

For example, large stumps or whole trees flowing down creeks or streams.

If you live near a hillside and you're seeing large chunks of dirt coming down into the road or tension cracks that run parallel to the slopes of a hillside call 9-1-1 and head out cautiously. 

With snow falling in the higher elevations this morning, we have also have a Winter Weather Advisory in effect.

That means if you're heading out on the roadways today, keep in mind you could get stuck.

Plan on major delays and poor visibility today and be prepared to spend up to 12 hours in your vehicle, on the roadway if something happens.

Here's what you need to have on hand: gloves, blankets, jackets a shovel, kitty litter or sand, tire chains or 4-wheel drive.
