Business owners in downtown San Anselmo are making sure they don't get caught by surprise by flood waters.

San Anselmo Creek is much lower than its peak during Friday's storm, but there's still concern about more wet weather.

Doors on several businesses have been blocked by boards and sandbags. The extra caution is necessary because the area has seen severe flooding before -- most recently in 2005.

"To lose your business for two months you lose so much. So, to go through that again and repair and reconstruct again, we're going to do anything to prevent that," said Sean Silen from Barton's Bagel's.

Business owners will put more sandbags.
