Third major storm moving into Northern California

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Forecasters say another major storm moving into Northern California is expected to bring more pouring rain, flooding and additional problems to an area already soaked after two major storms.

Residents of Northern California enjoyed just a bit of a respite Saturday, but the third storm in a string of powerful weather systems to hit the region since Wednesday is expected to force several rivers over their banks after it arrives Saturday evening.

The National Weather Service issued flood warnings early Saturday for both the Napa and Russian rivers.

Napa officials say residents are working to fill 700 bags with 10 tons of sand.

Forecasters also issued flood warnings for the Truckee River near Lake Tahoe and the Susan River in Lassen County, as well as the Eel, Navarro and Van Duzen rivers in far Northern California.
