Re: [californiadisasters] North State flooding

Some minor flooding in El Dorado County, some up to a foot or so.  Multiple wrecks over the last few hours, to many people in too big a hurry.  That has calmed down.  The number of dispatches has dropped considerably.

It was windy but it's calmed down here.  With the saturated ground, trees may be hazardous.

Sandbag locations have been posted, limit 20 bags per visit, load your own.

My personal weather station is reporting that the total so far since 1 Jul is over 21", roughly double the normal precip.

Merry Christmas,

Spiel Czech happens

Well, we're getting plenty of water with this latest storm set, and since the ground has been nicely pre-moistened, it's soaked up what it can and now we have *runoff* starting to result in mud/rockslides, falling trees, and plenty of flooded roadways.

Nothing huge as yet, although there is a rockslide that blocked Hwy 162 for most of the day and they're still working on getting it cleared (up in the Berry Creek area).  Houses in the area may have some erosion issues, haven't heard a whole lot on that.

Have a good night!
