The Plumas County Office of Emergency Services continues monitoring the storm and its impacts on our area. The National Weather Service advises that flooding of rivers and creeks will remain possible through the weekend and especially Saturday night into Sunday when a prolonged period of heavier rainfall is expected.
At this time a Flood Advisory, Wind Advisory, Flood Watch, and Hazardous Weather Outlook are all in affect. Residents are urged to monitor changeable conditions and expect localized flooding, hazardous travel conditions, highway closures and power outages.
With these hazardous conditions, please consider the following:
· Make a family disaster plan and emergency preparedness kit, allowing for self-sufficiency for up to three days.
· Limit outings to ones that are necessary. Non-essential errands or travels should be scheduled once the weather is better. Less traffic on the roadways makes it safer for everyone.
· If you must travel, decrease driving speeds, keep a safe following distance, allow for extra travel time, and be cautious of roadways with rocks, mudslides or standing water.
· Avoid flooded areas, especially with moving water. Swift moving water is very dangerous, even when shallow.
· Have an emergency “GO” kit with important items and warm clothing should you need to evacuate.
· Listen to radio reports for up-to-date information.
