No Flooding Yet

San Andreas, CA — There’s always a genuine concern about flooding in the Cosgrove Creek area of western Calaveras County when the rains come down and did they ever Tuesday evening.

From Captain Clay Hawkins from the Sheriff’s Department, “Not so far … we continue to watch Murphys Creek and Cosgrove Creek as the two trigger points that we use to evaluate how the rain will impact the local area. So far the rain is just going into the ground. It doesn’t seem to significantly rise within the channel banks. Of course we are going to continue to watch it (water levels) as each storm comes through.”

Today’s Winter Storm Watch ends at 4pm. However the National Weather Service has issued still another Winter Storm Watch for the Sierra Nevada from Friday afternoon through Saturday afternoon. Snow levels will begin at 45-hundred feet. One to three feet of snow is possible above 5,000 feet. Gusty winds of up to 60mph are likely over and near the crest.
