Flash floods, debris flows threaten Kincade Fire area Saturday

The Kincade Fire began northeast of Geyserville Wednesday, October 23, 2019. By Friday, the burn had grown to nearly 22,000 acres and was only 5 percent contained. Gov. Gavin Newsom declared a State of Emergency Friday, October 25, 2019 for Sonoma County, and for Los Angeles County, where the Tick Fire is also burning.

With another round of heavy showers headed to the region, the National Weather Service has updated a flash flood watch for the Kincade Fire burn scar, to be in effect from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday.

Downpours are expected Saturday into early Sunday, along with gusty winds and a chance of thunderstorms.

Rainfall in the Kincade Fire area could exceed a half-inch per hour, bringing a risk for flooding and debris flows, according to the weather service.

The rain is expected to taper off Sunday and drier weather is forecast for Monday through at least Wednesday.
