A flood watch remains in effect in the North Bay until early Thursday morning.

"It's amazing. It's the highest that I've seen in a long time. In how many years? I've been here a couple years. It's pretty booming and then it flooded a few years ago across the street," said San Anselmo resident James Pell.



With the rising creek, Pell is not discarding a possible evacuation.

Marin County officials are keeping a close eye on the San Anselmo and Novato creeks.
