| Filed under

Mudslide

[Updated 1:16 p.m.] The mudslides on Jackson Road in Sloughhouse, shown here early Thursday, have advanced to the point that now the road is narrowed to one lane as they try to clean it up. Traffic is backed up in both directions. This is just west of Sloughhouse, about 500 yards from the Meadowlands restaurant. (Check our traffic map for real-time info.) Other weather impacts: Deer Creek has once again flooded Scott Road north of Rancho Murieta, and the Cosumnes River is forecast to crest at 6 p.m. with minor flooding in Wilton, according to the National Weather Service. See the comments for news of a Scott Road water rescue Thursday morning (and a video of the rescue). And see Carol Anderson's report and photos about flooding at Lago and Pescado, handled quickly by RMA. If you have storm news or photos, please share at editor@ranchomurieta.com or (916) 354-3916. (Photo by Neil Harper) Read more » about Jackson Road narrowed by mud cleanup

Kiefer artwork

Bill (Birdman) Gengler offered this photo and info Tuesday: "Thought you might enjoy seeing the Keifer Road picture of the flooded bumps today.  It's the area after you take a right turn off Jackson Road. The creek and its surrounding farmland are flooded like a lake from Latrobe Road to Sloughhouse. The county has put up flooded signs in the area. I just like the scene." Click for larger image.

Cosumnes River

The area caught a break overnight, as the Cosumnes River didn't reach the forecast levels. Still, it was plenty high, with whitecaps rolling by the first green of the South Course Tuesday morning. A bunker there flooded 10 days ago, when the river damaged three of the course's holes, two of which remain under repair. Scott Road remained flooded Tuesday morning. Click photo for larger image.
