Here is the story about our local flooding issues that we are having. Be safe out there.
Washoe County is experiencing some localized flooding throughout the county on Thursday, March 22.
"According to the county the following locations have reports of flooding:
- Verdi: Minor flooding (infrastructure only) along Hill Lane
- South Reno/Virginia Foothills: Minor flooding (infrastructure only) along Kivett/Toll Road
- Belli Ranch along the Steamboat Ditch: Crews are monitoring and have reached out to Steamboat Ditch Co.
Residents are asked to be prepared and take precaution to protect their property as heavy rain and localized flooding is expected throughout the week.
"With our recent snows, the ground is saturated which is why we are urging people to be prepared as we could see some localized flooding across roadways and properties in flood prone areas” says Operations Division Director, Eric Crump. “While it is natural for some water to be pushed on to the road with high winds, always use caution and never drive through flooded roadways.”
