The National Weather Service in Sacramento has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for a portion of northern California...
  including the following area...Carquinez Strait and Delta.

* Through Saturday morning

* River levels in the delta have been elevated due to flood flows
  and reservoir releases from upstream rivers. Additional flood
  flows from Don Pedro Reservior are expected to arrive in the
  delta Wednesday.

* Previously identified concern areas on local levees will see
  increased river levels over the next week. 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 were to deteriorate.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch associated with levees means that there are
conditions that could affect levee stability. If levee conditions
were to deteriorate into a failure, it could lead to flash
flooding and the rapid arrival of flood waters within the area
protected by the levee. People in the area of the Flash Flood
Watch should monitor NOAA Weather Radio and other news outlets for
updates to this situation. Be prepared to quickly evacuate should
a Flash Flood Warning be issued.
