Red Flag Warning Extended Through Saturday

The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for the Los Angeles and Orange County Area, including La Habra Heights, through Saturday, December 9 at 8:00 pm.

The Fire Weather Watch is due to low humidity of about 5% with poor overnight recovery, combined with strong, gusty winds. Northeast winds are predicted at 20-35 mph with gusts up to 60 MPH along the coastal slopes. Isolated gusts up to 90 mph likely late tonight through Thursday in the remote canyon and foothill locations.


A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are expected. A combination of gusty winds and low relative
humidity can contribute to extreme fire behavior. Use extreme
caution when using potential fire ignition sources.
* Call 9-1-1 immediately if you see smoke or flames.
* Don’t drive vehicles in the dry brush.
* Do not use power equipment or metal bladed tools during brush clearance
* Do not use fireworks.
* Do not smoke or discard any hot or burning objects
If you see something or someone suspicious call 911, we want to know.
