There have been several flood warnings issued in the Fresno-area since January 8th, 2017 and through to January 11th. 

Weather.com issued a flood warning stating, "Flood remains in effect until 4 PM PST this afternoon. The flood watch continues for a portion of Central California including: East Central San Joaquin Valley, Southeastern San Joaquin Valley, Southwestern San Joaquin Valley and West Central San Joaquin Valley... A few [showers] with heavy downpours could cause minor street and urban flooding in normally poor drainage areas."

Weather.com later went on to state, "You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop." 

The time of 4pm was also pushed back to 6pm with a later update for January 11th, 2017 flood warnings. 

According to ABC30, there have been flooding in Yosemite and Bass Lake has been filled with rushing water. 

The Madera County Sheriff's Office issued evacuation warnings on their Facebook page stating, "Water has continued to rise in North Fork. Deputies are now evacuating all people from Church Street (both East and West)."

Be safe out there everyone!
