    The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department (SDSO) has issued a traffic advisory for Borrego Springs, with concerns the blooming of wildflowers in the region will cause vehicle congestion in the area.

    A statement from the Sheriff's Department said the bloom has not been this vibrant in years, which has already led to problems on roadways in the area. The department said to expect delays for the coming weeks.
