RENO, Nev. (AP) – The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a flood advisory for a section of the Truckee River where it flows out of Lake Tahoe.
Water managers increased the flows out of the lake Friday at the dam at Tahoe City, California due to the near-record snowpack in the Tahoe Basin.
The weather service says minor flooding is expected along the river from Tahoe to Squaw Creek near the Squaw Valley ski resort.
Bike paths and low-lying areas may become covered with water.
The service says it should be the highest flows that section of the river has seen since 2006.
The advisory remains in effect through 9:45 a.m. Thursday.
