Areal Flood Advisory
Issued: 3:55 PM PDT Apr. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... The flood advisory for a dam floodgate release remains in effect
until 1000 am PDT Wednesday for west central Churchill County...

Update Monday afternoon 4/24: Reservoir releases have been increased
slightly by the Truckee-Carson irrigation district in coordination
with local officials. This increase in flow has resulted in several
areas along the Carson River reaching bank full. Minor flooding of
some landscaped areas has been reported, but no flooding of homes
or infrastructure is occurring.

Bafford Lane was breached and the bridge closed last week to allow
water to flow around the bridge. The bridge may be closed for the
next 4 to 6 months based on information from law enforcement
officials.

These high flows will continue for an indefinite time as the
irrigation district draws down Lahontan Reservoir in anticipation of
higher snowmelt flows later this Spring. Officials are constantly
monitoring the high flows and channel conditions. Additional work is
likely to improve channel capacity to minimize any flooding
concerns.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Any unanticipated increase in flows or changes to the river channel
could lead to additional flooding in areas immediately adjacent to
the river.

The river is powerful, fast and cold. Please stay clear for safety.

... Wind Advisory remains in effect from 1 PM to 8 PM PDT
Wednesday...

* timing: winds will increase Wednesday morning, becoming strong
for the afternoon before decreasing in the evening behind a
cold front.

* Winds: west to northwest 25 to 40 mph with gusts to 55 mph.

* Wave heights on pyramid lake: 2 to 5 feet.

* Impacts: strong cross winds will cause hazardous driving
conditions, especially for high profile vehicles. Travel

Now is the time to secure loose outdoor items such as patio
furniture and trash cans before winds increase which could blow
these items away. The best thing to do is prepare ahead of time
by making sure you have extra food and water on hand, flashlights
with spare batteries and/or candles in the event of a power
outage.
