The National Weather Service issued the warning Sunday afternoon after heavy rain and thunderstorms fell in the area, which could have resulted in mud flow and debris, according to the NWS.

Doppler radar indicated a thunderstorm producing flash flooding between Camarillo and Moorpark north of Highway 101. Roadway flooding was expected on Santa Rosa Road.

The storm later drifted to the northeast. Camarillo Springs residents were initially urged to shelter in place. Ventura County sheriff's deputies checked hillsides for any signs of land movement, such as small landslides, debris flows or progressively tilting trees.

The Springs Fire can be seen from AIR7 HD on Friday, May 3, 2013.

The area is especially vulnerable following previous mudslides. In 2013, a fire swept through Camarillo Springs, burning up vegetation and clearing the way for mudslides.

Thirteen homes in Camarillo Springs were red-tagged and were deemed total losses following a storm in December.
