Morgan Territory Road is closed between 5477-5649 Morgan Territory Road due to mudslides. Only residents are allowed in the area.
Deer Valley Road is closed to all traffic in both directions between Briones Valley Road and Marsh Creek Road due to a sinkhole.

County officials ask people to never attempt to cross flooded roads, either by driving, riding or walking. If the power is out, treat all traffic signals like stop signs.
