...Another strong storm hits northern California through Tuesday...

.A stronger weather system will move through northern California
through Tuesday. It will bring periods of strong winds and heavy
snow to the higher elevations. A period of higher snow levels
today will limit snow impacts to near passes and higher but snow
levels will fall again by Tuesday morning. If traveling through
the Sierra Cascade range expect chain controls, long delays and
possible closures. Mudslides and rockslides could impact mountain
roads making them impassable for a day or more.

* Interior Northern California will experience another significant
uptick in flooding problems starting late tonight and continuing
through Monday night as an intense Atmospheric River type storm
arrives.

* Our entire region has saturated soils and many flooded areas
already. This will enhance the impact of additional heavy rains
this week.

* Additional stress will be placed on levees, rivers, creeks, and
streams.

* We may see flooding in locations which haven`t been impacted in
many years.

* We are strongly advising all residents in interior Northern
California to be prepared for flooding.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Be prepared to evacuate if flooding should affect your area. Gather
a "go bag" with important items like medications and hard to replace
documents. Do not forget to plan for you pets and animals.

Please never drive across flooded waters and roadways, especially
flowing water. Most people who are killed or injured during floods
are attempting to drive through flooded waters. Turn around, don`t
drown!

Aquifer : a body of permeable rock that can contain or transmit groundwater.
Yes the aquifer is being replenished, but it sounds more like you mean the surface water, you know, flooding, from rivers, seasonal creeks, just plain old runoff.

    We did actually mean ground water. The aquifer in the central valley has been so depleted that we needed sustained, saturation to have any hope of refilling many of the aquifers that have basically collapsed and may never regain their previous levels.

      Some of that other stuff seems to be missing too, but no one seems to care.

        Flagellum: A flagellum is a lash-like appendage that protrudes from the cell body of certain prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. The word flagellum in Latin means whip. The primary role of the flagellum is locomotion but it also often has function as a sensory organelle, being sensitive to chemicals and temperatures outside the cell. Flagella are organelles defined by function rather than structure.
