    Can someone provide an Update To N. Cal Storm

    Just saw a flash flood warning is posted for Northern Calif. and more is on the way for rest of week. Wondering what the lake situation is: Folsom Lake, and Shasta come to mind. I’m sure those lakes are near 100% after this storm, but can’t seem to find info. If someone could give a report, that would be really cool. And on flooding situation as well.

    Update: A Big Duh for me. Remembered the Sacramento Bee. Well here is the link to video and man is it a doozy.

      1. There hasn't been quite as much rain and flooding as they feared

      But very windy.  A lot of uprooted trees.

      2. wet

      Rivers rise as major storm hits Northern California.

      Try that in your search.  It is the headline on Fox not long ago.

      5. Wet. Very wet.

      Lots of flooding and road closures in the Napa Valley.

        6. I expected Napa to flood. I did work there for a couple years.

        Saw some minor flooding around 03-04.

          7. This is major stuff in spite of all the flood control measures

          Just about every cross road from Napa to Calistoga is closed. The road down the mountain was flooded in three places.

          The last time we had major flooding I saw a 300SL perched on a boulder the next trip I made down the mountain.

            21. Yes one good use of the "Obama Stimulus Money"

            Was in how local Napa politicians got some needed flood control items installed. Pumping equipment, road repairs and what not.

            Still, Nature in the form of raging waters is very hard to control. (No matter how many repairs or budget decisions are made to prevent Nature from tearing shit down.)

          10. I'm up high

          As soon as the rain lets up a bit my driveway will clear and I can get out. Tomorrow I can go check on my clients’ houses. We’re fighting leaks in one. Did some quick fixes on Friday, and I’m hoping they held.

            22. Stay safe. And remember, if you should need to cancel on

            Clients, better that than getting washed away.

      12. Don't know about the lakes, here's pix of my place

      in western Sonoma county. Last night was intense, all good though at my place! I hope everyone else is ok (@nvwino?).

      Some pics of my place this afternoon (apologies if too large or too many, let me know):

          18. Yeah, the last vid was up the road a bit

          as the Youtube comments say, but those comments don’t show here. The rest is all my place. Amazingly all that water is going where it’s supposed to, out to sea, I have the runoff routed pretty well so it doesn’t do any harm. Falling trees is the real risk here, probably for you too. Stay safe!

        23. After all the many years of drought,

        The rush of water heard in your video is music to my ears. Thanks for posting.

        24. Holy crap!

        That’s some rush! It’s beautiful but I’m assuming very dangerous.

        I’m glad you’re ok. :hug:

        Thank you for sharing this

      13. Here is the National Weather Service Map-Just keep clicking to a smaller area

      which will lead to a more specific and detailed forecast.  Hope this helps.

      15. Massive power outages in Northern California…

      …all along the Hwy 1 and Hwy 101 corridors (Mendocino coast almost entirely blacked out) to areas of the state northeast of Sacramento, and south almost to the SF Bay Area.  It appears to be mostly areas with lots of trees – power lines down in remote areas.  The Mendocino coast has been out of power all day, from Fort Bragg in the north, south to Gualala.  The winds have been wild!

          19. Well its nice to see the creeks get a nice flushing

          after being dry for a long time. Helps the vegetation get some nourishment.

      20. Our creek has water in it for the first time in years

      And I haven’t seen it like this since the El Niño years of the late 90’s.  If any of my neighbors cows got in there they’ve floated out to sea by now because this creek drains into the Merced River and ultimately SF Bay.

      Further upstream there is significant flooding in Yosemite Valley,  1st time since 1997.
