Heads up, Petaluma!
A high wind advisory has been issued for our region and is in effect until 3am Tuesday November 9. Moderate rainfall is expected with minor flooding possible.
City teams are on standby to immediately address any flooding or urgent issues caused by the storm.
Please secure loose objects outside your home as they could be moved or damaged by high winds.
Motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists should use caution when traveling on the roadways. Drivers should not pass road closure or flooding signs. If drivers encounter standing water on the roadway they are advised to not attempt to drive through the water as many times the standing water is much deeper than it appears.
