Camp Pendleton Weather and Traffic Advisory

Hazardous Weather Information:
Periods of heavy rain can increase the Flash Flood Potential. Local flooding and potentially deep, standing water, in the usual low lying areas across the Base, should be anticipated during periods of increased or heavy rains.

Burned areas and steep terrain are susceptible to mudslides, debris flows and erosion issues which could impact infrastructure, roadways and training areas.  Visibility will be reduced increasing the risk to driver safety. The potential for power outages exists.

All personnel aboard Camp Pendleton should exercise extreme caution during severe weather conditions.  Personnel in training areas should be notified to seek higher ground in the event of heavy or prolonged rainfall.  Drainage areas, creeks, and river areas should be avoided.  Avoid driving through standing water.  All personnel should remain diligent in safety procedures and situational awareness.  Extreme caution should also be taken in areas with limited to no lighting, such as Basilone Rd between Camp Horno and Las Pulgas. All personnel should be advised to adhere to traffic warning signs or notifications and to use extreme caution while driving.

Anticipate some road closures in low lying areas.

Potential affected areas include:
• Stuart Mesa Road between Edson Range and Las Flores
