With the continuing stormy weather, expect high winds and always a potential for localized flooding in poor drainage areas. Winds could topple trees and power lines, especially for locations that are susceptible. Soggy ground reduces stability. Stay tuned to local radio and television stations for the latest weather information or you can call the National Weather Service 24 hour weather line at 831-656-1725.  Local radio kwmr.org: 90.5 FM in Point Reyes Station; 89.9 FM, Bolinas; 92.3 FM, San Geronimo Valley.

Please do not call 911 unless you have an emergency.
