Red Flag Warning in Effect for Marin County 

Marin at Low Risk for this Event 

The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for interior North & East Bay Hills from today (8/17) at 11PM to tomorrow (8/18) at 3PM.  Marin is included in this warning, but is at low risk.  Because Marin is a low risk, the closures which are often put in place for Red Flag Warnings are not occurring.

The concerns with this weather system are that wildfires that develop will likely spread rapidly. Erratic gusty winds may result in dangerous and unpredictable fire behavior. Residents are advised to exercise extreme caution during the Red Flag Warning because a simple spark could cause a major wildfire, including the use of equipment and machinery as well as smoking. 

Defensible space is essential to improve a home’s chance of surviving a wildfire.
