Wow! 6pm and 3 inches of rain so far today, more coming through the night

Some Flooding reported in Benicia, power outages in Vallejo

The City of Benicia has a weather page that is updated every five minutes.  At 6pm today, the Benicia Water Treatment Plant chart showed that we have received over 3 inches of rain since midnight this morning. My phone says it will continue raining all evening and through the night.

FLOODING – East E Street in Benicia is flooded and blocked off.  Here is from Art Stine’s Nextdoor conversation about 3:30p.m. earlier today (

East E Street Benicia about midway between East 2nd and East 5th St.   There’s severe flooding as I write this and the city has warned and blocked off the street where the flooding exists. However, people insist on coming through and driving rather quickly which causes the water to splash up onto our neighbors across the street at Solano Benicia (where all the mobile homes are at) causing even more flooding. If you read this and you’re coming down this way please just drive through slowly, extremely slowly, or go a different route. that would help a lot thank you.
POWER OUTAGES NEARBY – As of 6:30p.m., PGE reports that Benicia is not experiencing any power outages, but several exist in neighboring Vallejo.
