...A FLOOD WARNING FOR SNOWMELT REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 200 PM PDT
MONDAY FOR NORTHEASTERN KINGS...NORTHWESTERN TULARE AND CENTRAL
FRESNO COUNTIES...

At 554 AM PDT, emergency management reported a levee breach along
the Kings River resulting in flooding of the adjacent Kings River
Golf and Country Club golf course in Tulare County. The water was
within 200 feet of homes and evacuations are underway. High water
releases from Pine Flat Dam are expected to continue through the
weekend, as Pine Flat Lake is near its storage capacity due to
ongoing snow melt. Dangerously high water flows along the Kings
River will continue to threaten communities downstream of Pine Flat
Dam. Locations impacted include, but are not limited to: Minkler,
Reedley, Kingsburg, and Grangeville.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Stay away or be swept away. River banks and culverts can become
unstable and unsafe.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring. All
interested parties should take necessary precautions immediately.
