Larkspur Drivers Navigate Flooding

Rains and high tides flood local streets

Corte Madera Creek looked ready to overflow its banks — and it did in some places in Larkspur on Friday.

Larkspur's Public Works Department and the Ross Valley Sanitary District got calls about flooding in some neighborhoods, although there were no reports of homes in danger.

Residents at the Larkspur Marina neighborhood and Larkspur Plaza Drive both had to negotiate ponds in front of their homes.

Light rain is expected to continue through the weekend.

The December king tides which caused flooding around Marin County this week are expected to subside after today. This marks the second of four winter king tides events, following earlier king tide events on Nov. 13-15. Additional winter king tides will occur Jan 9-11 and Feb. 7-9.

Pretty photo, although I understand the flooding is an inconvenience and possible hazard. Let's hope the later king tides aren't as bad.

The temporary end to king tides is a relief, but get ready for January.
