Rain, Floods Hit Humboldt County

Humboldt County saw significant rainfall and stormy conditions over the last 24 hours, and while several rivers were expected to flood later today it appears the impacts will be less than previously forecast. While the storm did not hit as hard as anticipated, it's important you are prepared and informed so you take appropriate actions before, during and after significant flood events, especially if you are in a low-lying part of the county.

The Sheriff's Office offers these preventive measures.
Van Duzen River at Bridgeville were forecast to flood last night.

See aerial photos of the county provided by the Coast Guard when we had a very high tide last week. They start at Mad River and head south to Eel River.
