Red Flag Warning

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

The National Weather Service has declared that a Red Flag Warning is in effect for our area since 11:00pm Wednesday night through 3:00 pm Friday. While the weather will seem mild with local temperatures no more than mid 70’s there are off shore North winds predicted and the humidity will be under 20%.

While the area had a significant rain fall last Saturday, the last few days of warm weather and wind has dried out the light fuels in the hills. There have been a couple of small vegetation fires in the West County in the last couple of days and the potential is there for El Cerrito.

The Fire Department has placed Red Flag Warning signs in the parks near the BBQs with instructions to not use them. Additionally we will maintain a high situational awareness on the ridge tops and will have extra staff available in the event of a fire. Please do not hesitate to report any smoke that you may see in the hills.
