Rain Could Bring Mudslides and New Challenges In Butte County

The rain that is in the forecast throughout Northern California this week will bring smoke and fire relief, but also bring many challenges to Butte County. 

Rain could not only hamper the search for victims from the Camp Fire, but there is also concern that it could create risk to the searchers. Mudslides are a possibility in some neighborhoods in Paradise. Also, residents that haven't been allowed back to their homes may not get the chance to search for belongings before they get washed away. 

In Chico, where evacuees are living in a tent city, many are urging them to move to shelters, because the parking lot where they are living is in a flood zone. 

FEMA says it is unclear on whether trailers will be brought in. 

As of Tuesday morning, the Camp Fire has killed 79, with the total number of people missing at 699. 46,031 evacuated. 

Officials say the Camp Fire has burned 151,000 acres and is 70% contained. Here's how you can help
