...Forecast flooding changed from Minor to Moderate severity for the
following rivers in California...

For the Middle Fork Feather River...including Portola...Moderate

Heavy rain associated with a strong atmospheric river event will
create increased runoff and snowmelt in the Middle Fork Feather
River Basin. This will lead to higher flows and minor to
moderate flooding from Portola downstream to Sloat.


Be alert for heavy rain upstream of your location which could cause
additional rapid rises on rivers and streams. Valuables should be
moved away from areas subject to flooding. Never drive through
flooded areas. Follow the directions of emergency officials.
