Flash flood, potential evacuation warnings issued for Siskiyou County’s Mount Shasta Vista Subdivision
SISKIYOU COUNTY, Calif., — For the second time in as many days, the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office has issued flash flood and potential evacuation warnings for the areas of Juniper Terrace and Rising Hill roads, in the Mount Shasta Vista Subdivision.
Today’s warnings, like similar warnings given on Tuesday after rains doused the North State region, are in response to flooding in the Whitney Creek area.
LEADING THE SCNS HEADLINES:
“EVACUATION WARNING – WHITNEY CREEK…AGAIN,” Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a social media release around 5:35 p.m. this evening, Thursday, July 29.
For the second time this week, the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office has issued flash flood and potential evacuation warnings for the Mount Shasta Vista Subdivision of Whitney Creek, in the area of Juniper Terrace and Rising Hill roads. This photo, from Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office, was shared as part of Tuesday’s social media warnings.
“There is an EVACUATION WARNING … due to a FLASH FLOOD from Whitney Creek,” the post continued; adding that the warning is for “upwards of 12 hours.”
Although this evening’s warnings advised the same area was being threatened and was similar to Tuesday’s warnings, no evacuations were ordered that day or evening.
In this evening’s post, which included translation for the area’s large Hmong community, Sheriff’s officials reminded area residents to stay away from flooded areas and to remain prepared in the event of further updates or evacuation orders.
