Bond Fire Debris Flows, California: January 25 and 28, 2021
On Wednesday, December 2, 2020 at approximately 10:15 PM PST, the Bond wildfire ignited in Orange County, California, burning partially within the Cleveland Forest, near Silverado Canyon just north of the area burned by the October 2020 Silverado fire. The fire burned 27 square kilometers (sq km) prior to containment on December 10, 2020 (CalFire). Rainfall events during the atmospheric river rainfall event in California during January 24, 2021 to January 29, 2021 triggered debris flows near Silverado in the Bond Burn area. Debris flows were observed and recorded in small watersheds near the northern burn perimeter, south of Silverado in White Canyon and in an unnamed canyon above Olive Drive.
