* at 1035 am PDT... a Glacier outburst on Mt Shasta has released

past Highway 89 approximately 4 to 5 miles east of McCloud... where a
flood threat still exists. Accumulated water and debris may break
free and flow downstream at any time.

A Flash Flood Warning means flash flooding is occurring or is

attempt to cross water covered bridges... dips... or low water
crossings. Never try to cross a flowing stream... even a small one...
on foot. To escape rising water move up to higher ground.
