Heavy rains and flash floods have prompted Marin County officials to activate the county’s emergency operations center. Sheriff’s deputies and firefighters are helping to evacuate residents from flooded homes in Forest Knolls and Woodacre, the Marin County Sheriff’s Office tweeted out.

Crews are assisting residents in evacuations along Castro Street in Forest Knolls and Lagunitas due to flooding, tweets from the sheriff’s office said.

The county has also deployed its Water Rescue teams at key locations throughout Marin. The San Geronimo Community Center at 6350 Sir Francis Drake Blvd. has opened its doors for residents who were forced to leave their homes temporarily.
