SHASTA AND TRINITY COUNTIES, Calif. - Action News Now takes a closer look into how the winter storm is affecting areas impacted by the Carr Fire.

The heavy rain raised concerns of flash flooding and mudslides in parts of Shasta and Trinity Counties, which were scorched during the Carr Fire. 

Caltrans has been preparing the areas, by hydro-seeding hillsides in the burn-scar area to help prevent erosion. 

Workers have also added fences and bark in some areas. 

"While we can not always control everything 100 percent we can mitigate what's out there as far as burn scars and other things caused and related to the fires," said Joe Baltazar, acting chief of traffic for Caltrans District 2. 

Caltrans says if there are problems with mudslides or flooding as the rains continue, they do have contractors on standby.

August began seasonably hot on this Sunday with fewer showers and thunderstorms than previous days, but a few did still pop over the higher terrain. Our rain chances are disappearing, but the heat and smoke will remain.
