(KTXL) — Sacramento County officials issued an evacuation order for residents in the area of Wilton Sunday evening due to “imminent flooding.”

The order was issued several hours after officials first issued a warning, advising residents to leave ahead of a Sunday night storm that could continue into Tuesday and has the potential to make roads impassable, limiting residents’ ability to leave once the rain starts.

The areas near Wilton that are ordered to evacuate:

  • Northbound: Jackson Rd/Hwy 16
  • Eastbound: Grant Line Rd, south to Bond Rd, south to Hwy 99
  • Southbound: Arno Rd, west to Alta Mesa Rd, south to Twin Cities Rd, west to Clay Station Rd
  • Westbound: Clay Station Rd, north about 4 miles, then northwest to Jackson Rd/Hwy 16

An evacuation center has been established at Sacramento Asian Sports Foundation, 9040 High Tech Ct, Elk Grove, CA 95758.

Officials ask that evacuated residents with pets or livestock call 2-1-1 before evacuating “to determine the most appropriate place to take them.”

Northern California is expected to be hit with more heavy rain with the possibility of flooding in some areas Sunday evening through Tuesday.

According to the National Weather Service, moderate to heavy rain will be seen throughout the valley. Heavy winds can also be expected which could cause more widespread power outages and downed trees.

The NWS predicts that the next storm will bring two rounds of heavy rain. The first round of rain will be the heaviest and will begin Sunday evening and last through Monday morning. Another round of rain will begin Monday evening and will continue into Tuesday.

The NWS has issued a flood watch in the Sacramento region until Wednesday afternoon.

Since there has been little time for the region to dry off, the next atmospheric river is expected to cause more damage with rainfall overrunning the waterways and the wind affecting trees that sit on loose and still-wet soil.

In preparation for Monday’s storm, Sacramento County is issuing an evacuation warning in the area of Wilton. The evacuation warning encompasses the area south of Highway 16, west of Clay Station Road, North of Twin Cities Road and east of Grant Line Road.
