Hazard Advisory
  • La Conchita
    • An advisory has been issued to residents that live in the Community of La Conchita due to the volume of rain expected to saturate hillsides above the area. Over the last 14 days, La Conchita has received nearly 4 inches of rain with a potential to receive an additional 3”-5” over the next 5 days. This amount of rain will likely cause the soil to become saturated and may result in landslides or debris flows.  
On Sunday February 4, 2024, at 9:00AM, the Ventura County Human Services Agency and American Red Cross will be opening an Emergency Evacuation Shelter in the Ventura College Gymnasium located at 4667 Telegraph Rd, Ventura, CA 93003. Individuals who require temporary shelter are encouraged to visit this location for assistance.
While Ventura County remains one of the Safest Counties in America, it is prone to hazardous conditions that often present during severe rainstorms. Residents are asked to stay vigilant to changing conditions and if asked to evacuate, follow the recommendations provided by public safety officials.
