High water recedes before affecting Cradlebaugh

Genoa, Nev. — Update, all roads have reopened after the weekend’s high water closed Centerville and Mottsville lanes and overtopped Genoa Lane

The river stopped short of affecting Cradlebaugh Bridge on Highway 395.

Carson Valley remains under a flood watch through 11 a.m. today as high water overtopped Genoa Lane with 4 inches of water.

The Carson River crested downstream from Cradlebaugh Bridge at 2 a.m. Monday.

The East Fork crested in Gardnerville at 5,820 cubic feet per second 6:15 p.m. Saturday, but continued to rise as the crest made its way downstream.

“Flows upstream of Carson Valley are decreasing, but it will take some time for the flood wave to make its way through the Valley,” forecasters said. “Rivers, creeks, streams, urban areas along the river, farmland, pastures, roads, and low lying areas in Carson Valley are at the greatest risk for flooding. High flows may also impact Cradlebaugh Bridge along Highway 395.”
