Much of the town of Guerneville is submerged today thanks to a rising Russian River, and it's only going to get worse by nighttime.
Those who are sticking it out in town and who are now cut off from the rest of Sonoma County have been posting photos and video to social media of what the flooding looks like.
The river is expected to crest at around 46 feet at 10 p.m. tonight, and if it doesn't climb any higher than it will not break the record high crests of 48.56 feet set in February 1986, or 49.7 feet, which it hit in December 1955. This will be the highest crest the river has seen since 1997, however.
Fans of the popular LGBT-centric R3 Resort are going to be sad to see that the whole place is under 6 feet of muddy water right now, and that mess is going to be a lot to clean up. The hotel, which is no stranger to scenes like this, was closed for over a year in the last decade thanks to a previous flood.
During a particularly wet December back in 2015, the Chronicle ran a piece about how Guerneville always revives and comes back from its flood devastation. But this looks like it will be a tough one.
Below, the documentation so far.
