BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for the Camp Fire burn scar. 

The warning is in effect for central Butte County until 10 p.m. on Thursday, May 30. 

The service issued the following statement: 

At 406 PM PDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms with heavy rain moving over the Camp Fire burn area. Flash flooding is expected to begin shortly. Heavy rain rates are expected to be high enough to generate debris flows in the steep portions of the burn.

The Thunderstorms are expected to spread west over the burn scar area near Paradise over the next hour. The severely burned areas are of particular concern. This includes the greater Paradise area and local roads, Pulga, Concow, Feather River tributaries, and Highway 70 and the Skyway in Butte County.
