The National Weather Service on Thursday issued a flash flood warning in central Mariposa County.

The flash flood warning is scheduled through 8:15 p.m. as of this writing.

Radar indicated heavy rain across the area, and flash flooding and debris flow were expected to begin shortly after the warning was issued, the National Weather Service in Hanford said.

Areas expected to experience flooding include El Portal, Jerseydale and Crane Flat.

The National Weather Service recommends residents move away from recently burned areas.

“Life-threatening flooding of creeks and roads is likely,” the National Weather Service said. “The heavy rains will likely trigger rockslides, mudslides and debris flows in steep terrain, especially in and around these areas.”

No other information was immediately available.
