With increasing water levels in the Carmel River yesterday, firefighters were able to practice swift water rescue skills. Firefighters trained on throw bag, swimmer, and tension diagonal drills.
While they were training, a dog out for a walk decided to give them "hands on" rescue practice when he went for a swim, prompting firefighters to use their swift water rescue skills to save the dog from the fast and rough moving water. Perfect timing!

The National Weather Service has issued an Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for Poor Drainage Areas in Monterey County until 7:00 PM.

* At 4:04 PM Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated heavy rain that will cause urban and small stream flooding. Overflowing poor drainage areas will result in minor flooding in the advisory area through the evening commute.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Salinas, Watsonville, Seaside, Monterey, Marina, Jamesburg, Lucia, Arroyo Seco, Big Sur Village, Tassajara Hot Springs, Gorda,
Soledad, Greenfield, Pacific Grove, King City, Gonzales, Carmel-By-The-Sea, Carmel Valley Village, Andrew Molera State Park
and Partington Ridge.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the dangers of flooding.

Remain alert for flooding even in locations not receiving rain. Arroyos, streams, and rivers can become raging killer currents in a matter of minutes, even from distant rainfall.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you can do so safely.

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
