Red Flag Warning Issued for June 7-8, 2020

Posted on

The National Weather Service issued a Red Flag Warning beginning 6 pm Sunday, June 7, 2020, through 7 pm Monday, June 8, 2020, due to high winds, low humidity, and increased temperatures. Gusty winds up 50 mph along the Malibu coast are expected to begin by midnight Sunday night. Temperatures for our area will increase through Wednesday.

Red Flag Warnings issued by the National Weather Service identify time periods when conditions are ideal for wildfires. During Red Flag warnings it is especially important to:

  • Report any signs of smoke immediately to emergency responders. If on the Malibu campus call Public Safety at 310.506.4441. At all other locations report smoke by calling 911.
  • Use caution when disposing of cigarettes and ensure that they are completely extinguished.
  • Minimize any use of open flame in outdoor settings.
  • Consider taking down umbrellas and moving patio furniture inside.

During Red Flag conditions, Southern California Edison (SCE) may issue a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS), a preemptive deenergization of electrical circuits in an attempt to prevent power lines from starting a potential wildfire. This may result in the loss of power for a Pepperdine campus. While SCE has promised to advise the community in advance, and University officials are in regular communication with SCE representatives, the community should nevertheless be prepared for the possibility of a PSPS. Further details on a PSPS and how you can prepare are available here. 

The Department of Public Safety is monitoring the situation and is prepared to respond to potential wildfires.
