The Storm Hits: Flooding, High Winds
The wind is beating against the windows and throwing waves of water in a good old fashioned Humboldt storm today. The radar above shows the extent of the storm. Below you can see the different watches, warnings and advisories issued for northwestern California.
Currently, rain is falling hard in Southern Humboldt. The National Weather Service out of Eureka just posted on their Facebook page, “A Flood Advisory has been issued for southern Humboldt and Trinity counties and northern Mendocino County through 730 PM this evening, 3/5/16. If traveling, watch for rock slides and ponding of water.”
The Weather Service also says, “A Flood Warning has been issued for the Navarro River at Navarro in Mendocino County from late tonight through Sunday morning. The river is forecast to crest during the early morning hours Sunday.”
Several mountainous areas have Winter Weather watches.
