The Bond Scar ravaged the region, causing nearly $ 500,000 in damage last year. Experts are concerned that the vegetation has not had enough time to grow and hold the soil in place during a big storm.
The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch that will be in effect from Thursday evening to Friday morning for the coast and interior of Orange County.
