March is going out like a lion in the north county. At least that’s how it looked yesterday.
Wind and rain in many areas. Paso Robles received some steady rain early this morning between 1 and three. High winds and steady rain in Atascadero, but highway 41 remains open.
The rain storms exposed a natural gas pipeline near Whale Rock reservoir. The spill over from the reservoir exposed the So Cal gas line near Whale Rock. They’re working on it now.
There was a “shallow water rescue” in the south county yesterday. On Huasna road and Alisos road, someone drove a car into some flood waters. Four occupants in the vehicle safely evacuated, but one ended up on the other side of the creek with moderate injuries. Fire fighters initiated a shallow water rescue, and carried the person across the creek. That took about an hour.
A tow truck was called to pull the vehicle out of the creek.
