Crews continue cleanup after mudslides in Oak Glen and Forest Falls

San Bernardino County Fire

Forty homes remain under evacuation orders in the communities of Forest Falls, after heavy downpours on Monday caused flash flooding and large debris flows there and Oak Glen.

The rain fell on the burn scars left by the El Dorado and Apple Fire and led way to flooding in the communities of Oak Glen and Forest Falls.

“Some of the damage is pretty significant to both infrastructure and homes, we have significant mudflows that are impacting roadways," said San Bernardino County Fire Department Battalion Chief Mike McClintock in a prerecorded video posted on Twitter.

Crews with the fire department worked through Tuesday to clear walls of mud… that ranged from 1 to 12 feet tall. “We have more than 120 personnel here in Forest Falls in Oak Glen actively searching the mudflow impacted areas for any survivors or victims," McClintock said. "We have heavy equipment numerous firefighters and agencies working here."

As of Tuesday evening, crews were searching through the debris for at least one missing person. You can check the San Bernardino County Fire Twitter for the most up-to-date information.
