Below is a Google + GIS (Geographical Information System) map showing estimated risk of debris flows from the areas burned by the Creek fire and La Tuna fire. This data is hosted on a GIS server operated by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

To see the map legend please click the “Map tips” link in the upper left corner and then the legend button.

To see a list of the 20+ GIS overlay layers that you can turn on/off and restack, click the basemap button (next to the “Menu” button) and then look under the “Overlay” heading. Mobile users need to scroll down to the “Overlay” section.

The USGS (via PM) estimates that similar data for the Thomas fire might be ready late this week or early next week.

If you would like to get the most benefit from the map, please read the “Map tips”.
