Streets Flood in San Rafael, Mill Valley as Wild Storm Lashes Bay Area – CBS San Francisco

SAN RAFAEL (CBS SF) — Authorities in Marin County were advising residents of widespread street flooding in San Rafael, Mill Valley and other areas, warning people to avoid certain areas due to extreme flooding Sunday afternoon.


Many roadways were under 2 feet of water and were impassable, San Rafael police said in an alert about 2:15 p.m.

“The flooding is anticipated to worsen due to another high tide, in addition to the rainfall levels from the atmospheric river,” police said in an advisory.

Just after 3:45 p.m., the San Rafael Office of Emergency Services tweeted images of some residential flooding. Officials warned that much of downtown San Rafael was flooded and encouraged residents to stay home.

Meanwhile the Marin County Sheriff was tweeting about flooding in other areas and road closures.

A stretch of the Shoreline Highway in Olema was shut down from Sir Francis Drake/Hwy 1 to Sir Francis Drake/Hwy1 in Point Reyes due to flooding.

Mill Valley was also seeing flooding in the Sycamore Triangle neighborhood. Residents there were told to move their vehicles to higher ground at the Mill Valley Community Center.

The sheriff also tweeted at about 4 p.m. that flood sirens had been activated in Ross, San Anselmo and Fairfax as the Corte Madera Creek crested its banks.

Residents were advised to void the area and seek higher ground if near creeks or streams.
