Parts of Ventura, Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino counties are on high alert today as at least two inches of rain are forecast across Southern California between now and Thursday.

While the rain might be a welcome sight given the gravity of the wildfires here recently, other areas are worried about the potential for the rains to cause flooding and debris flow in areas affected by those wildfires. Specifically, the city of Malibu is warning its residents of possible power outages and mudslides in areas that were scorched by the Woolsey Fire that burned parts of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties.

Meanwhile, emergency management officials in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties have issued voluntary evacuations in areas including Glen Eden, Alberhill, Rice and Amorose.

We’ll get the latest from affected areas.
