Sandbags available if necessary

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for north central California, which covers a large swath of the state. Additionally, there are several areas in Plumas County that are prone to flooding so be extra vigilant as the rain continues to fall over the next few days. Sheriff Greg Hagwood, whose office coordinates emergency services for the county, said that local fire departments have been contacted and have sandbags available if they are needed.
