Post Date:03/01/2019 4:20 PM

Sausalito was prepared for the worst from another "atmospheric river" storm that began on Monday, February 25 and continued through Wednesday, February 27. Fortunately, few incidents were reported despite high winds and more than 3.5 inches of rain.
  • Officers of the Sausalito Police Department removed a few small tree branches and wind-blown garbage cans from City streets.
  • The Public Works Department reported minor sloughing off of chert and soil on Edwards Avenue, a typical occurrence during the rainy season.
  • Fireboat Liberty responded to a report of a boat dragging anchor on Richardson Bay, but the occupant declined assistance.
  • More earth movement occurred at the site of a previous mudslide at 330 Ebbtide Avenue.
  • A tree fell and obstructed the roadway in the 600 block of Sausalito Boulevard. Southern Marin Fire was able to clear the road with the assistance of traffic control from the Sausalito Police. The Public Works Department completed the job by chipping branches and hauling away the stump and pieces of the trunk.
More rain is expected over the next week, according to the National Weather Service. Rain is forecast to start late Friday and continue through the weekend, with the possibility of up to 1.5 inches of accumulated precipitation. An "atmospheric river" storm is forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday, March 5 and 6, with possible accumulation of 2 to 3 inches of rain and winds out of the south gusting to 30 mph. The National Weather Service is also forecasting continued stormy weather throughout the month of March.
