Well, we made it through the big storm. Our community did an excellent job preparing for potential flooding. We received three deliveries of sand from the County and our parking lot was full of residents actively working to prepare for the storm. More rainfall is expected this weekend and with the ground at a high saturation level, flooding is still possible.
- The next rain system moves in on Saturday (tomorrow). There will be a slight break in the rain on Sunday, but then Sunday night rain will pick up and continue until Tuesday.
- Marin under flood watch from Saturday until Tuesday morning.
- A wind advisory goes into effect Saturday morning at 0400 hours. While the wind will not be as strong as the previous storm, saturated grounds will make it easier for trees to fall over during upcoming wind events.
- The heaviest rainfall will occur Monday afternoon into Monday night.
- High tides will not not abnormally high during these storms but as we saw recently, may cause localized flooding.
- Rainfall totals between Saturday and Sunday are expected to be 1 to 2 inches. Between Monday and Tuesday another 2 to 4 inches is expected. Rain continues all week next week and the seven day totals for rain is expected to be between 8 to 10 inches in our area.
Please expect these hazards/inconveniences and take steps NOW to prepare.
- Stay home and off the roads as much as possible. Those who live in flood prone areas and leave home may face the possibility of being unable to return home if roadways close due to flooding.
- If you must drive, use extra caution, allow extra time, slow down and do not drive through flooded areas.
- Those living in flood-prone areas should be prepared for possible flooding impacts.
- Secure outdoor objects that could be picked up by wind.
We advise that you do your best to sandbag vulnerable areas at your home to limit potential damage. We have sand available in the Community Center parking lot at 203 Marin Avenue. Bring your own shovel to fill bags. Limited bags available to fill; please consider bringing your own.
