GUERNEVILLE, Calif. - People living in the community of Guerneville have been forced to flee their homes because of heavy flooding.
The town has officially been deemed an island, according to the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office.
A slow-moving atmospheric river has caused multiple North Bay rivers and streams to soar above flood stage and beyond.
The Rising Russian River at Guerneville, in particular, is expected to crest at 46 feet late this evening.
The sheriff's office says people will not be able to get into or out of the town without a boat.
