ALPINE...SIERRA...SOUTHEASTERN LASSEN...STOREY...SOUTHERN WASHOE... DOUGLAS...AND NORTHERN LYON COUNTIES AND CARSON CITY... At 427 AM PST, the heavy rain has ended, but many small streams continue to see high flows and are out of their banks. Also, flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas should continue through the morning. Showers will persist today and snow levels will begin to fall. The falling snow levels and lack of widespread moderate or greater rain will allow many areas with minor flooding to see their flood waters slowly drain through the morning. Some locations that will experience flooding include...

Interior Northern California has experienced significant rainfall and widespread flooding problems from prolonged rainfall. The entire region has saturated soils resulting in widespread areas of standing water, high stream flows and many flooded areas. Continued runoff and high stream flows will stress levees leading to bank erosion, boils and breaches. Flooding has occurred in locations that have not experienced flooding in many years. Residents in interior Northern California should be prepared for flooding. Be prepared to evacuate if flooding should affect your area. Gather a "go bag" with important items like medications and hard to replace documents. Don't forget to plan for your pets and animals. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood deaths occur in vehicles. A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring. All interested parties should take necessary precautions immediately.
