Storm Watch Update
(December 11, 2014 @ 5:43 PM)

Good Evening!

The rain is expected to continue throughout the evening with southeastern winds 10 to 15 MPH, with gusts up to 25 MPH.

Many areas experienced localized flooding from rain run-off and this is expected to continue through tomorrow morning. Small streams are reported to be filling to their banks with some overflowing onto roadways. Water levels will continue to rise for many hours after the rain ends.

Since midnight, the Williams Area has received approximately 1.79” of rain, and the Colusa Area has received approximately 2.18” of rain, and the Arbuckle area has received 2.42” of rain.

According to the National Weather Service moderate to heavy rain is expected through this evening with an approximate 2 to 3 inches in some areas.

The highest wind gust reported today was in Colusa at 33 MPH, other areas about 10 to 15 MPH; due to the low wind factor, the number of power outages and downed trees has been minimal. PG&E reported about 8 customers without power in the Danley Road area this afternoon.

The Williams Pioneer Review has been continuously updating road closure information throughout Colusa County on its Road Closures Page. A total of 18 roads were officially closed by the Colusa County Department of Public Works.

Many roads may have water crossing them, or may be temporarily flooded. Although a route or road is not listed on the road closures, drivers should use extra caution and expect delays or unannounced closures. Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross safely.

At 4:45 p.m. the Sacramento River at Bridge Street remains below flood watch at 44.70 ft. – Flood Stage is at 70 ft.

As rain continues and the imminent threat of areal flooding, sandbag locations have been setup countywide. These locations can be found on the Sandbag Locations page.

Several Severe Weather Alerts remain in effect:

  • Areal Flood Warning
  • Areal Flood Advisory
  • Areal Flood Watch
