A message from the City of Napa, sent at 9:15 a.m. Nov. 30, 2012:
The National Weather Service has extended the Flash Flood Watch that includes Napa and the North Bay through Monday, December 3. The second of three storms is expected to pass through the area Friday morning, with the third storm expected to arrive Saturday night and continue into Sunday.
The City's self-service sandbag operations will continue through the weekend in the parking lot north of the Napa Premium Outlets on Freeway Drive near First Street. (The sandbag pickup day scheduled for Saturday at the Corp Yard is cancelled and residents can come to the First Street location instead.)
Those wanting sandbags should bring a shovel and gloves and be prepared to fill and transport their own bags. About 5,000 sandbags and 100 tons of sand were taken away by residents on Thursday.
While area creeks, the Napa River and reservoirs have remained below flood stage, the storm expected Sunday carries the potential for several inches of rain. Residents in low-lying or flood-prone areas near creeks and streams are advised to remain watchful. To track rainfall amounts and river and creek levels, go to http://napa.onerain.com/home.php.
