Update Northern Nevada storm and flooding.
We are closer to flooding levels in 2005 versus 1997, which is good news.
I-80 is closed eastbound and westbound over the Sierras. Mount Rose highway is closed due to mudslides. Update: Kingsbury Grade closed. Highway 50 still open to Lake Tahoe into CA. I believe Highway 88 into CA is still open as well. All bridges in downtown Reno closed.
The Truckee River is cresting through Reno at 1:00 am and Sparks around 3:00 am. There is significant flooding and people have already been evacuated to two locations.
It has rained over an inch in Carson City. We are expected to get at least three inches of rain. The 4-5 inches of snow that was received this week is almost melted. So far, water is moving and has not begun to flood in my neighborhood. There is flooding occurring but not in my local vicinity. I have seen a few photos of mudslides in Carson City. The rain will turn to snow on Monday or Tuesday, which is also good news.
The Governor has requested only essential state employees show up for work on Monday.
