Flash Flooding Near Lake Isabella

July 14, 2008 8:27:54 AM PDT
Flash flooding forced evacuations near Lake Isabella on the southern end of the Sequoia National Forest.Kern County officials suggested people leave their homes when the heavy rainfall flooded parts of Erskine Creek Canyon.

The flooding left behind a muddy mess all over central and eastern Kern County.

Road crews used tractors to push mud off of Highway 178. Firefighters say the rains helped them slow down some wildfires, but those fires also probably cleared out vegetation that could have stopped the flash flooding.
