The evacuation warnings for communities in the San Bernardino Mountains were canceled Wednesday morning, Nov. 9, after a storm passed through that dumped heavy rain and snow.
The affected areas were Oak Glen, Forest Falls, Mountain Home Village, Angelus Oaks and northeast Yucaipa. The rain caused mud and rocks to inundate some roads in areas where the Apple and El Dorado fires had burned.
Chain controls were in effect throughout the San Bernardino Mountains, Caltrans said. Chains or traction devices were required on all vehicles except four-wheel or all-wheel-drive vehicles that have snow tread tires on all four wheels.

Also Wednesday, schools in the Bear Valley Unified School District were closed because of power outages, inclement weather and unsafe road conditions. Those schools include North Shore and Baldwin Lane, elementary campuses, and Big Bear Middle School, Big Bear and Chautauqua high schools and Fallsvale School.
