Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Warning
Issued: 1:47 AM PST Jan. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in the San Francisco Bay area has issued
a

* Flood Warning for small streams in...
southeastern Sonoma County in northern California...

* until 745 am PST Sunday

* at 143 am PST, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
that moderate to heavy rain continues to fall over much of Sonoma
County. Additional rainfall through the early morning will result
in rises on area creeks and streams that will exacerbate ongoing
flooding. These areas include mark West Creek, Colgan creek and
areas in the lower Laguna de Santa Rosa.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Petaluma, Rohnert Park, Sebastopol, Cotati, Forestville, Graton
and the mark west area.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, country roads, farmland, and other low lying
spots.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate Route.

Monterey County including Pinnacles National Monument... North
Bay interior valleys... North Bay mountains... northern Monterey

slopes.

* The primary impacts will be localized ponding of water on low

creeks with some likely exceeding bankfull... some river
flooding... and potential rock and mud slides. Recent burn
scars will also be susceptible to debris flows during periods
of intense rainfall.

shelter until winds and waves subside. Commercial vessels should
prepare for very strong winds and dangerous sea conditions... and
consider remaining in port or taking shelter in port until winds
and waves subside.
