Alertable Thunderstorm Alert

Alertable Thunderstorm Alert

10:11am Wednesday June 26, 2024
I just received an alert from the Alertable app suggesting that there is a chance of heavy rain in this afternoons thunderstorms. If you are in a Red or Orange zone it’s important to stay aware of the amount of rain received, and remember it’s not just where you are, but upstream from you. If you see that heavy rain for as little as 15 minutes, there is a heightened chance of a landslide/debris flow. I would suggest going for a drive, visit a local restaurant, do something to get out of the possible path until the rain subsides.

I’m not trying to scare anyone or be alarmist, but the report is out and it states that red zones have a better than 1 in 1000 chance of a landslide in the next couple of years. Unfortunately that’s a pretty high chance. We need to be AWARE of our weather.

Get the Alertable app for iOS, android, facebook, X etc.

Go to the CSRD Emergency Program website to check if you are in a danger zone.

The information below is exactly what I received…
