SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — With many parts of the region still reeling from Saturday’s New Year’s Eve deluge, the Bay Area is bracing for the impact of another, potentially more powerful, storm on Wednesday. Another atmospheric river with flood-triggering downpours is set to unleash more destruction on the Bay Area beginning Wednesday into Thursday.

Antioch Mayor Lamar Thorpe warned of a sinkhole developing at 3915 Delta Fair Boulevard. The eastbound right lane east of Kendree Street has been closed.

Thorpe asked members of the community to stay inside on Wednesday unless they absolutely need to leave home. The city anticipates mudslides, trees falling and street flooding.

5:04 p.m.Sandbag stations running out in some cities

As residents fill sandbags up with Wednesday’s storm approaching, several cities have announced that they have run out of sand.

The City of San Leandro said that there is no longer sand at its stations at the Public Works Service Center and Fire Station #12. The city recommends checking local hardware stores for availability.

In Pleasant Hill, all three sandbag stations are closed. They will be replenished Wednesday morning, the city said.

San Mateo is also out of sand, with the city saying it is working to get more resources.

4:20 p.m. — Schools make announcements regarding closures

The South San Francisco Unified School District announced that it will cancel classes on Thursday, January 5. Schools will stay open on Wednesday, but athletic and extracurricular activities will be canceled and parents are encouraged to pick their children up as close to dismissal time as possible.

1:55 p.m. — Sandbags available at SF Public Works until 8 p.m.

The San Francisco Department of Public Works announced in a tweet that it has a limited supply of sandbags available at its Operations Yard at the Marin and Kansas streets gate. Sandbags are available for residents whose properties are prone to flooding with a limit of five per address. The yard will be open until 8 p.m. Tuesday. “Please only get sandbags if you really need them,” the tweet read.

San Francisco Public Works announced at 5:55 p.m. that its sandbag supply was depleted.

“Southerly Winds look to be much stronger with the Weds-Thurs storm than what we saw New Year’s Eve,” wrote the National Weather Service Bay Area in a tweet. “High Wind Watches are up for much of NorCal Weds-Thurs. Saturated soils and strong winds will likely bring down trees leading to power outages and blocked road. Make a plan now!”

In a subsequent tweet, the NWS published a storm prep checklist, urging that Tuesday, Jan. 3 was the last day to prep for this week’s storm.

NWS storm prep checklist:

  • Pack a “go bag” to evacuate quickly
  • Have insurance policies handy (tip: take photos of each room in your home beforehand)
  • Extra supplies at home in case closed roads/power outages last for several days
  • Plan for pets’ needs
  • Stock up on necessary medications
  • Prepare for flooding if you’re near a river/creek
  • Mud/rock slides could occur if you’re near hills
  • Sign up for your county’s reverse 9-1-1

“Jan. 3 is your last day to do storm prep before heavy rain & strong winds arrive Wed-Thu,” the tweet read.

A flood watch beginning Wednesday has been extended to the entire Bay Area. One dire forecast update from the NWS also warns that the deluge will likely result in the loss of human life.

“There is particular concern for those living in landslide-prone areas, burn scar areas, and those living close to rivers. The ground is simply unable to absorb all of the water, and instead, it causes flooding. We have very saturated ground, and additional rainfall is only going to exacerbate the dangers that we experienced last weekend. The important message right now is for people to make any preparations they need to on Tuesday ahead of this next storm system,” KRON4 Meteorologist Kyla Grogan said.
