Malibu is expected to see two to three inches of rain during a storm that is slated to begin early Wednesday, Feb. 13, and continue through at least the evening of Thursday, Feb. 14.

Thursday’s precipitation is expected to be heavy at times, according to the National Weather Service.

The City of Malibu is again warning of the potential for flooding as well as mud and debris flow in the Woolsey Fire burn area. Canyon roads also are likely to be slippery, and strong winds are expected.

“Residents with properties that have limited access should monitor the condition of roadways closely,” the City’s alert states. “Identify multiple exit routes out of your property and consider leaving early to avoid extended closures. If you become trapped call 911 and seek higher ground.”
