RIVERSIDE COUNTY, Calif. - Voluntary evacuations in Southern California have been issued for the Holy Fire burn area in Riverside County, with storms predicted for Monday afternoon.

Cal Fire is warning community members that now is the safest time to leave due to potential flooding. 

One homeowner in Lake Elsinore has been preparing his property for the upcoming storm. He says that despite the work, he is thankful he has a home to protect.

"As much of a pain that it is, you start thinking of people who lost homes in Malibu and the people up in the Camp Fire in Paradise and then you think that it could be a lot worse," said Marty Silva, a homeowner in the Riverside County area. 

Closer to home, debris flow is not yet a concern in the Camp Fire burn areas, however, Action News Now will continue to monitor the situation.
