Napa stream, creek advisories still in effect

January 4, 2008 12:00:00 AM PST
An urban and small stream flood advisory in the city of Napa was extended until 5:30 p.m. today and a flash flood watch remains in effect this afternoon, Napa community outreach coordinator Barry Martin said this afternoon.

Decreased rainfall since 2 p.m. lowered the level of Napa creeks and streams but there is still a wide variety of power outages due to downed power lines, Martin said.

Rainfall amounts in the Napa Valley between 2 p.m. Thursday and 2 p.m. today ranged between two and six inches, according to measurements on the city's Web site.

Travel was restricted in Napa County late this morning on White Sulphur Springs Road, Soda Canyon Road, Coombsville Road and Conn Valley Road. Downed power lines closed Silverado Trail between Larkmead and Dunaweal lanes and flooding was reported on Silverado Trail between Skellenger Lane and state Highway 128.

Martin said sand bags are available around the clock at Memorial Stadium on Menlo Avenue. The Napa River is not predicted to flood and is expected to rise only halfway to the flood monitoring stage this weekend.
