MARIN (KRON) — Sunday’s storm is starting to take a toll on Marin County, as several areas and roads are shut down due to floods and even rock slides.

LATEST UPDATE: Several power poles with live wires are down on Center at Tamalpais. This is a very dangerous area that MUST be avoided. The power poles are leaning with live, high voltage lines that are down. Do not go near the area.

 

  • The Mount Tamalpais Watershed and surrounding roads are closed due to risks of mudslides, rock slides, falling trees, and failed stream crossings, according to Marin Municipal Water District officials. Other roads and gates in and around the watershed are also closing. The watershed will reopen to the public after the storm passes and crews can cleanup debris.
  • In Mill Valley:
  • The intersection of Camino Alto/Miller is closed due to flooding in the area. Use alternate routes and stay off the roads if possible.
  • Miller Ave closed from Reed to Hwy 101.
  • A Shelter in Place is advised for a Novato RV Park located at 1530 Armstrong due to flooding. Armstrong Ave. at Cherry Street is closed.  Novato Fire District says do not attempt to drive through closed roads due to flooding.
  • CHP reports a rock slide blocking a southbound lane at the south end of the Robin Williams Tunnel on Highway 101.

Earlier this morning, Novato Fire even had their Emergency Operations Center activated in response to the storm. They have since deactivated the crew.
