Original Post: LoCO‘s roundup of all things wet:
•Numerous readers are alerting us to a car overturned on Highway 101 between Fortuna and the Singley Road exit. CHP dispatch reports that one lane has been closed and that an ambulance is en route.
•The county’s Public Works department informs LoCO that it has shut down Redwood Drive between Garberville and Redway saying the amount of material on the roadway is too much to keep up with.
•According to Caltrans: “Southbound US Highway 101 is reduced to one lane due to flooding just south of Stafford in Humboldt County. Please drive with caution.”
•LoCO‘s drive to work this morning was impeded by flooding at the intersection coming off the Hookton Road exit near Loleta (pictured below). KHUM’s Mike Dronkers spoke with Caltrans spokesman Eli Rohl, who was on the scene:
•Another crash on Highway 36 by Pamplin Grove, as a minivan slipped off into a ravine. Ambulance responding.
•Barista Makenzie Clark provided this photo above taken at Jitter Bean in Fortuna. Southbound Fortuna Boulavard is closed from Rohnerville Road to Smith Lane due to Rohner Creek flooding.
•The Humboldt County Office of Emergency Services’ official Twitter account notes that the following roads are closed:
