According to National Weather Service in America, once the storm starts it’s expected to drop up to two-three inches of rain in some areas.
On Monday, the Officials in Riverside County issued the Mandatory Evacuation orders for residents in the Holy Fire burn areas. And early Tuesday morning neighbourhoods of Matri, McVicker, Amorose, Alberhill, Glen Ivy A, Glen Ivy B, Glen Eden, Grace, Horsethief A, Laguna and Withrow were also issued with the ‘Leave Now’ order.
Areas which were scorched last year by the Holy Fires are susceptible for heavy mud flow.
So far a mudslide has already closed a road on the far westbound located on the Pacific Coast Highway of Malibu. It is expected that the road to be closed until the debris can be cleared and authorities have warned residents to avoid the area until further notice.

The National Weather Service wrote in it’s warning:
“There is the potential of mudslides and debris flows at recent burn scars, particularly near the Holy Fire burn scar,” and. “Debris flows can happen suddenly with little time to act. Heed the advice of local officials”.
The second storm is expected to hit California late today and will bring a good amount of rain and possible snow in higher areas.
The third storm will be the worst of all of them and is expected to hit late Wednesday night connecting Thursday morning.
These weather anomalies that we are seeing worldwide have started to increase and where in the past we would see one happening now we are seeing two and in this case three storms happening at the same time. Without any doubt there is something very wrong with the balance of our world. And we truly hope humanity is able to turn back from the damage we are causing on Earth and start taking care of it. I would like to leave you with this amazing quote and please warn your beloved ones and at all times stay vigilant.
