* Interior Northern California will experience another significant
  uptick in flooding problems starting late tonight and continuing
  through Monday night as an intense Atmospheric River type storm
  arrives.

* Our entire region has saturated soils and many flooded areas
  already.  This will enhance the impact of additional heavy rains
  this week.

* Additional stress will be placed on levees, rivers, creeks, and
  streams.

* We may see flooding in locations which haven`t been impacted in
  many years.

* We are strongly advising all residents in interior Northern
  California to be prepared for flooding.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Be prepared to evacuate if flooding should affect your area.  Gather
a "go bag" with important items like medications and hard to replace
documents.  Do not forget to plan for you pets and animals.

Please never drive across flooded waters and roadways, especially
flowing water.  Most people who are killed or injured during floods
are attempting to drive through flooded waters.  Turn around, don`t
drown!
