avatar Flood warning for Mono County
June 29, 2011 05:22PM
The flood warning remains in effect until 1000 am PDT Thursday (June 30) for western Mono County...

flood warning for small creeks and streams... In western Mono County in central California... This includes small creeks and streams near...Bridgeport...Twin Lakes...Toms Place...Mammoth Lakes...Lee Vining...June Lake... Crowley Lake...Coleville and Topaz Lake.
flooding continues to affect campgrounds...back country roads and hiking trails this week. Flooding has been reported in Lee Vining Canyon...along Deadman Creek and in Mammoth Lakes near Sherwin and Mammoth Creeks.
if you are camping near a river or stream...remember the highest water levels usually occur at night. A campground may look dry and safe in the afternoon...but may flood at night.
low pressure moving into the west coast will produce a period of rain in Mono County tonight into Wednesday. Rain combined with moist soil conditions will increase runoff and may produce additional sudden rises on small creeks and streams.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross safely. Move to higher ground.

Flooding is occurring or is imminent. It is important to know where you are relative to streams...rivers...or creeks which can become killers in heavy rains. Campers and hikers should avoid streams or creeks.
