Leaders Visit Areas of Concern For Potential Flooding

Posted: Updated:

Governor Brian Sandoval and other leaders from Reno, Sparks and Washoe County toured the areas that were anticipated to be most impacted by this weekend's storm.

Starting at Wingfield Park in downtown Reno, the group saw a first-hand view of the conditions at different sites around the area Sunday morning.

Nevada Assemblyman David Bobzien says even though there was a break in the weather, there was still some concern.

"I think this is always the most dangerous point when people start to let their guard down," he said. "This is still a very dangerous river. The flood stage is definitely here, and it's going to peak. So, people need to be very careful about getting too close to the river."

We went with the group to their next stop around Larkin Circle in Sparks, where Governor Sandoval applauded the preparation efforts from everyone in our area.

"Really proud of Washoe County, City of Sparks, City of Reno, of how they've handled this situation," the Governor said. "They've shown a tremendous amount of leadership and prepared for any eventuality."

He said the preparations for this weekend were key after dealing with flooding in the past.
