HEALDSBURG: All Flooded Roads Open But Schools Remain Closed Friday

HEALDSBURG (BCN) — All roads have reopened in Healdsburg where kayaks plied the waters of the parking lots of Safeway off West Matheson Street and the CVS
store on Center Street today.

Debra Nelson, the City’s Emergency Operations Center’s coordinator, said the flooded roads began reopening around 2 p.m. and the last road closure ended at 3:15 p.m.

The overflowing Foss Creek flooded portions of Healdsburg Avenue and Grove and Mill Streets.

The rain and flooding closed City Hall and Healdsburg Unified School District schools. The schools will remain closed Friday.

The City’s Emergency Operations Center opened Wednesday afternoon and monitored the storm through the night.

“We began receiving calls at 4 a.m.,” Nelson said.

No power outages or downed trees were reported, Nelson said.
