“FLOODED DURING RAINS.” This sign, that I ran across in Modjeska, CA. while on a fire assignment in So Cal, just about says it all about southern California hydrology on the wildland urban interface. Check out this video of a debris flow in Devore, California, December 25, 2003. The Old and Grand Prix Wildfires had burned the watershed above this street just a couple of months before. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4JPxw578UE&feature=related If you want to read some really good non-fiction writing about southern California floods and debris flows read “Los Angeles Against the Mountains,” a chapter in John McPhee’s book The Control of Nature.
