SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - With another powerful storm heading to Northern California, the National Weather Service has issued flood warnings for the Napa and Russian rivers.
Forecasters say the Napa River is expected to rise above flood stage around noon Sunday near the city of Napa and near St. Helena, while the Russian River is expected to flood near Guerneville early Monday morning.
Besides the danger of flooding, forecasters are also warning about the possibility of mudslides and of trees falling in the area because the ground is saturated from the previous storms.
A flash flood watch is also in effect for a wide area of Northern California through Sunday evening.
