* interior northern California will experience another significant uptick in flooding problems starting late tonight and continuing through Monday night as an intense atmospheric river type storm arrives.
* Our entire region has saturated soils and many flooded areas already. This will enhance the impact of additional heavy rains this week.
* Additional stress will be placed on levees, rivers, creeks, and streams.
* We may see flooding in locations which haven't been impacted in many years.
* We are strongly advising all residents in interior northern California to 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. Do not Forget to plan for you pets and animals.
Please never drive across flooded waters and roadways, especially flowing water. Most people who are killed or injured during floods are attempting to drive through flooded waters. Turn around, don't drown!
... Flood Watch remains in effect from 1 am PST Monday through Tuesday morning...
The Flood Watch continues for
* portions of east central California and western Nevada, including the following areas, in east central California, greater Lake Tahoe area. In western Nevada, greater Lake Tahoe area.
* From 1 am PST Monday through Tuesday morning
* a strong atmospheric river will bring heavy rain with high snow levels. Moderate to heavy rain and snow melt below 7000 feet will contribute to increasing flows on rivers and streams with an enhanced flood potential late tonight through Tuesday morning.
* The highest risk of flooding is along creeks, streams, and poor drainage areas, including the upper Truckee River in South Lake Tahoe. The Truckee and Carson River are forecast to rise to near monitor stage Monday night into Tuesday, but at this time are expected to remain below flood stage.
Small creeks and streams are the most susceptible to flooding. Excessive rainfall may also generate rock and mud slides in steep terrain. Persons in the Lake Tahoe area should take action to clear blocked drains and areas where snow berms would allow water to collect and damage property. Persons living along small creeks and streams should monitor the latest weather information at weather.Gov/Reno and be prepared to take action should flooding occur.
