At 427 AM PST, the heavy rain has ended, but many small streams
continue to see high flows and are out of their banks. Also,
flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas should continue
through the morning. Showers will persist today and snow levels will
begin to fall. The falling snow levels and lack of widespread
moderate or greater rain will allow many areas with minor flooding
to see their flood waters slowly drain through the morning.
Some locations that will experience flooding include…
Reno, Carson City, Minden, Gardnerville, Virginia City, Dayton, the
Sierra Valley, and Washoe Valley
As of February 20, the bridge at Bafford Lane and the river crossing at Diversion Dam are closed due to flooding and/or flood preparation.
Signs are posted alerting of the closures. For your own safety, do not drive around the signs and barriers to cross them.
