The rainstorm of Feb. 14, 2019, caused extensive damage to Forest Service roads across the national forest, which covers the San Bernardino and San Jacinto mountains, as well as as the eastern slice of the San Gabriels. Damage was also caused to permitted state routes maintained by Caltrans. An incident response team has been created and is working to assess the damage and prioritize repairs.

New (3/28/19): Interactive map showing the location and nature of known damage across the forest. As more damage is reported, the map will be updated.

Note: Because damage is throughout the forest, the location marked on the InciWeb map is set to the forest headquarters in San Bernardino, Calif.
