Flood advisory issued from Sunday-Tuesday for Southern Lyon County areas shaded in green

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a flood advisory for areas along the East and West Walkers from Sunday, March 19 to Tuesday, March 21.

Officials will be releasing water from Bridgeport Reservoir and Topaz Lake on Sunday, resulting in creased flows on the rivers. This means minor flooding is likely to occur along East Walker Road downstream of the Strosnider Ditch by Monday morning, and partial closures of East Walker Road are also possible.

Minor flooding is also likely to occur below Yerington where Miller Lane crosses the river as early as Tuesday, and impacts are also possible in rural parts of south central Lyon County.
