March Storm Prep - 3/9

Published: March 09, 2023

Graph depicting March 9 forecast that Russian River will reach Flood stage of 32 feet mid-day Friday March 10 and fall below Monitor stage on Saturday March 11

Current forecasts predict the Russian River will peak in Guerneville at 33.3 ft, into the flood stage, at 11 pm on Friday. Wind advisory along the Coast and throughout Sonoma at 20-30 mph with gusts of up to 50 mph expected. Of course this means some trees/tree limbs will be coming down; so be prepared for possible power outages. We also have a second storm system coming in with plans to peak on the 14th, but this system is still too far out for accurate predictions. It's worthwhile, however, to know that this will be a wet week ahead on already saturated soils. This is the time to pull out of low lying areas for the week ahead.

Sandbag supplies, thanks to the Public Infrastructure department, are available at Sonoma Landworks in Guerneville and at the Occidental Firehouse.
