    Prepare for Severe Weather Conditions

    Mother Nature sure has taken its toll on the west this past week.  Wildfires are raging through Northern California, Oregon and Washington state; and mudslides, as a result of flash flooding, are plaguing Southern California.  Many state parks and national forests have been shut down, as well as state and local highways, which I’m sure have hindered a few of your RV travel plans.  Unfortunately there is not much we can do to predict these types of events but you can prepare yourself for when the weather turns bad. Always make sure you keep up to date on weather alerts for any destinations you are traveling to and through.  Real time weather apps are available for your Smartphone or GPS systems that can keep you up to date on any severe weather approaching your area.  Try an app such as WeatherBug, which gives you real time updates on the most accurate weather conditions, in addition to live satellite neighborhood level radar so you can see what’s happening around you. If you have a GPS system, try downloading the California Highway Conditions app. This provides you with current road conditions and closures for all California state highways, local highways, and US highways due to weather or construction delays. If you are already at your destination when severe weather approaches, know your campground’s severe weather procedures.  Most have an evacuation plan set in place that will get you and your families out safely. Or, if it hits when you least expect it, most campgrounds have a central gathering place for you and your family to go to ride out the severe weather. In the cases of flash flooding in Southern California, 3.89 inches of rain fell in just a short period of time.  No one could predict that the rain was going to fall that fast and cause such dangerous flash flooding and mudslides in the San Bernardino Mountains.  Almost 500 campers were stranded because the mudslides caused road closures and they had to spend the night at a nearby community center. The best thing you can do to prepare for unforeseen weather conditions is to keep up to date on weather conditions for your area,  follow all road conditions and closures, familiarize yourself with your surroundings(campgrounds), and have a plan in place should severe weather strike when you least expect it.
