Rio del Mar in Aptos have been reported, and the Corralitos creek
stream gage at Green Valley Road is rising rapidly and has almost

* Ponding is likely already occurring in the Interlaken/amesti area
due to high water levels in College Lake, Drew Lake, Lake Tynan,
Kelly Lake, and Pinto Lake. Urban flooding of streets may also be
occurring.

Excessive rainfall over the warned area will cause mud slides near
steep terrain. The mud slide can consist of rock, mud, vegetation and
other loose materials.
