From the Humboldt County Office of Emergency Services:
The Eel River at Fernbridge is currently forecast to exceed flood stage at 20.1 ft by Tuesday at 8 a.m. and then again at 22.9 ft Wednesday afternoon. River forecasts are likely to change. We’ll be continuing to monitor this forecast throughout the day and into tomorrow.
Impacts expected at 20.1 ft:
Significant flooding of the western portions of Cannibal Island Road, Camp Weott Road, the Salt and Old Rivers and all adjacent low-lying areas. Flooding in these areas is exaggerated when crest timing is coincident with high tides and strong onshore winds, and for longer duration events. A Special Action Advisory is being issued to all owners of livestock in low-lying areas of the Eel Delta. These animals are at risk due to rising river levels and appropriate action should be considered.
Impacts expected at 22.9 ft:
The western half of the Eel Delta may be completely flooded, especially if at or above this level for an extended period of time. This include areas northwest of Loleta, Cannibal Island Road. A Special Action Advisory is being issued to all owners of livestock in low-lying areas of the Eel Delta. These animals are at risk due to rising river levels, and appropriate action should be considered.
