NEVADA – Douglas County is warning residents to brace themselves for a storm that is likely to reach the area later this week.

Flooding is predicted owing to storms that will sweep through the area this Friday through Sunday, according to the county.

Due to the flooding, residents in Douglas County may experience some road closures on arterial roads such as Mottsville, Centerville Lane, Muller Lane, and Genoa Lane.

Excessive runoff from heavy rains may create flooding of main stem rivers, creeks, and streams, as well as other low-lying and flood-prone locations. According to the county, river flooding is most expected on the Carson River’s east fork.

They also say that depending on the amount of rain, flash floods and debris flow is possible in fire-damaged areas. According to the county, the Tamarack Fire Burn region is most vulnerable to this.

In preparation for the storm, the county is reminding homeowners of where they can obtain sandbags to help prevent flooding in their region.

These are their addresses:

•            Sheridan Fire Station 980 Sheridan Lane

•            Genoa Fire Station 2298 Main Street

•            Highland Way at the large water tank (Holbrook Highlands area)

•            Johnson Lane Fire Station 1450 Stephanie Lane

•            Fish Springs Fire Station 2249 Fish Springs Road

•            Ruhenstroth Fire Station 2008 Pinto Circle
