...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH SATURDAY MORNING...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* A portion of northern California...including the following
  areas...and Delta and the levees along the Lower San Joaquin
  River in the Northern San Joaquin Valley.


* Through Saturday morning

* Don Pedro and other local dams are making large reservoir
  releases that are raising river levels along the Lower San
  Joaquin River north of Grayson. These elevated levels are
  causing flooding in the low-lying areas along the river and
  increasing concerns on the levees in the area.

* As a precaution, San Joaquin County officials and the National
  Weather Service are encouraging local residents to be prepared
  to take action in the event that levee conditions deteriorate.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A flash flood watch associated with levees means that there is an
issue on the levee that if it were to deteriorate into a failure
it could lead to flash flooding and the rapid arrival of flood
waters into the area normally protected by the levee.
