If you've returned home or to your property, stay alert Monday for possible debris flow and mudslides.

PARADISE, Calif. - Many people have returned home, or at least to their properties now almost three months after the Camp Fire.

If this is you, keep in mind that Monday there is a Flash Flood Watch in effect, and the morning is off to a wet rainy start.

Thunderstorms are possible and keep in mind, heavy rain from thunderstorms over a burn area can generate life-threatening debris flows and rock slides.

If this starts to happen that watch will turn into a Flash Flood Warning from the National Weather Service for the burn areas.

Debris flows can be a dangerous situation, so if you see movement of soils, debris, or large amounts of water you should move to higher ground and away from the burn area immediately.

If you've moved back into this area or you're planning to drive through, you need to be alert for the potential of mud and debris flows.

These flows could impact area roadways and hill sides, damage homes, and could block local streams and creeks.

Remember, do not try to cross flooded roadways or creeks - a debris flow of only a few inches deep can be powerful enough to move a vehicle off the road.
