CHICO, Calif. - Communities across the valley today are under a Flood Warning around creeks and streams.
A flood warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring - take necessary precautions immediately.
At Chico's Bidwell Park, Big Chico Creek is flowing fast and high, so if you're out around the Sycamore Pool, be careful!
Stay aware of the threat until about 730 p.m. Thursday.
As much as about 3 inches of rain has fallen over most of the North State warning, including 5 inches around Magalia from Tuesday night.
Recent burn scar areas may also experience minor mud, rock and debris flows, especially if thunderstorms develop in the burn scar.
This includes portions of the Camp Fire burn area in Butte County.
Stay away or be swept away; river banks and culverts can become unstable and unsafe.
Do not drive your car over flooded roadways, and be on the lookout especially on areas like Highway 99 North of Chico, Cohasset Road, and keep in mind that River Road is closed due to flooding at the Washout and at Chico River Road.
