As you are all aware, the National Weather Service (NWS) is predicting that a significant winter storm will make land fall early Tuesday morning. The city of Yucaipa would like to encourage our residents who may live in or near the El Dorado Fire burn scar to be prepared. This storm is anticipated to produce upwards of 4 to 6 inches of rain for the valleys and mountain areas within our region. At this point in time, in coordination with the Yucaipa Police and Fire Departments as well as San Bernardino County Fire, the surrounding areas are under an evacuation order. Oak Glen. Yucaipa North Bench. Forest Falls. Mountain Home Village. Angelus Oaks. We strongly encourage the residents that live in this area to please heed the evacuation order. With the anticipated rainfall rates, there is a strong possibility that this storm event could generate a significant debris flow, resulting in some damage to public and private properties. Our public safety officials issue these evacuation orders when there is an immediate/potential threat to the public. The city will continue to monitor the storm and will provide frequent updates on our website and social media platforms as circumstances evolve.

Thank you, Mayor Greg Bogh
