Through Wednesday, California is expecting rounds of heavy rain, mountain snow, high winds, with potential for flooding, downed trees/debris and power outages. Please stay safe.
If you live near a river, levee or area prone to flooding, gather your essentials so you'll be ready to evacuate at a moment's notice.

Weather forecasts predict another series of storms to affect most of the state next week, bringing heavy rains and potential for flooding in some areas.

- Consult with your supervisor to determine if remote work is appropriate for your duties and local conditions.
- Understand that some employees' job duties require them to be on site to serve clientele,...
California is expecting another major storm beginning on Wednesday, Jan. 4, through Jan. 5. This storm is expected to bring rain statewide, with the highest rainfall totals and potential local flooding in Northern California.
In light of threat to roads and freeways in many areas, ANR's emergency management team suggests that supervisors may demonstrate maximum flexibility to reduce the number of employees on streets and to minimize the number of employees who need to commute to work during the storm. Local and regional power outages are likely during the storm and employees working remotely may lose power/internet/cell connectivity.
