A flood warning for the Smith and Klamath Rivers is in a effect until further notice and a voluntary evacuation is strongly recommended for people in low lying areas of Klamath, including:

Klamath Mill Road, the old Klamath town site, Requa Road, McMillian Road, Terwer Riffle Road, Resighini Rancheria, Klamath Beach Road, the Klamath Glen and any mobile home parks near the river. A shelter in Klamath will by available starting at 9 p.m. Thursday, at the Methodist Church, 126 Redwood Road.

Do not drive across flooded roadways. It only takes 2 feet of water to float most vehicles. For road conditions call Caltrans at 707-951-9719  or 1-800-427-7623, or visit http://www.dot.ca.gov/cgi-bin/roads.cgi.
