Flooding Fears

By  | 

An urban and small stream flood advisory remains in effect until 9 p-m tonight in western Nevada as another wave of rain approaches the area.
Heavy rain last night caused standing water on roadways, making
traveling difficult during the evening commute.
Residents in some neighborhoods used sand bags and other
materials to try to prevent flooding caused when small streams
overflowed their banks.
Forecasters say another round of rain will move into the region
later today into tonight.
Snow levels will remain around the eight-thousand foot level.
The weather service says a break in the weather is expected for
the weekend.

Heavy rain saturated Northern Nevada, leading to a flash-flood warning for some areas.
In Carson City, some homeowners near the Waterfall Fire burn area were especially worried as storm water flooded streets, and mud clustered in gutters blocking drains.
City workers were out late into the night on Wednesday, clearing drains and handing out sand bags to worried residents.
