SILVERADO CANYON ( — Mandatory evacuations issued Friday morning were lifted for residents of Silverado Canyon in Orange County.

The Orange County EOC warned citizens in the Silverado Canyon burn area of flash floods and debris flow danger.

KCAL9's Michele Gile reported the evacuation orders were lifted just before 2:00 p.m.

The evacuations were ordered for all homes east of 30311 Silverado Canyon Road.

Heavy downpours in the area have left just under two inches of rain so far.
