People in San Bernardino County and Riverside County are still feeling the effects of Tropical Storm Kay, which brought heavy rain and flooding and
caused roads to be closed in places like Forest Falls, Oak Glen, and Lake Mathews. On Monday afternoon, flash flood warnings were issued. Late
Monday, people were also told to leave the areas of Oak Glen and Forest Falls. Eric Sherwin, a spokesman for the San Bernardino County Fire Department,
said that the flooding had an effect on the burn scars from the Apple and El Dorado fires in 2020. Sherwin said that the towns of Forest Falls and Oak Glen were hurt by
"significant" debris flows. Just after 9 p.m. The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, which people in the area call Yucaipa Police, told people in the Oak Glen area to leave. The Sheriff's
Department said that around 10 p.m., a second order to leave was given in Forest Falls, from Canyon Drive to Prospect Drive, south of Valley of the
Falls. People in Forest Falls had been told earlier to stay in their homes. The Redlands East Valley High School, at 31000 East Colton Ave., was set up as an evacuation centre, the sheriff's office said.
San Bernardino County Public Works says that Valley of the Falls Drive is closed in the Forest Falls area.
Public works said that Oak Glen Road had to be closed at Little San Gorgonio Creek in the Oak Glen area.
Caltrans said that flooding and debris in the area caused mudslides that blocked Highway 38 between Bryant Street and Lake Williams Drive in the San Bernardino Mountains.
