Light rain

Rain causes flooding, downed trees in county

  • A large tree fell uphill on Skillman Ln. near Century Ln. 690 Skillman Ln

At times Monday it rained hard. Enough that windshield wipers had to be set on rapid, Little League games were canceled, some roads flooded in Healdsburg, Sonoma and Cotati, trees came down in places and in the hills where the most rain fell, landslides shut roads.

"It's trying real hard to be one of those days," Sonoma County's road maintenance division manager, Rob Silva, said in an email to county officials.

After crews Monday took away 200 yards of debris and reopened a stretch of Stewarts Point Skaggs Spring Road that had been narrowed to one lane by a Saturday slide, a second slide, seven miles away, toppled trees and power lines and partially blocked the road, three miles from Highway 1.

Crews were to work through the night and the road was expected to be fully open today, Silva said.

That was near Annapolis, which received about 1.50 inches of rain Monday, Silva said.
