Officials say current models are showing 2-5 inches of rain per hour possible. All of Mariposa County including the Detwiler burn area are in the affected areas. This is significant rainfall combined with lightning/thunder activity.
12:51 PM-Tracking a thunderstorm producing heavy rain and frequent lightning. It's crawling up the foothills of Tuolomne Co. and looks like it will sit put for a while before shifting slightly east. Will be watching closely. #cawx pic.twitter.com/NvbJnOPEnP— Alena Lee (@AlenaABC30) March 22, 2018
