With more rain on the way, officials keep a close eye on river levels

Rivers throughout the region continue to swell from recent rains, but with a lull between Tuesday’s deluge and Thursday’s next storm, Monterey County officials are keeping a watchful eye on the waterways’ levels. Thursday’s forecast calls for a 100 percent chance of rain, heavy at times, dumping between a quarter-inch and half-inch of precipitation. “There’s a coastal flood warning from 7 a.m. to noon on Thursday,” said Anna Schneider, National Weather Service meteorologist. “And we have a flash flood watch for most of Monterey County from 4 a.m. Thursday to 7 a.m. Friday.” As far as preparation for the next storm, “I can tell you a lot of monitoring is going on … sometimes overnight,” said Maia Carroll, Monterey County spokeswoman. “That’s all we can do right now.”
