UPDATE from a reader:

I’m the shelter person from Pescadero.  I don’t know why OES put out that alert, but the shelter is not open.  The Sheriffs checked it out and decided there was not enough of a threat to open it.
Yes, Pescadero Road is flooded near Hiway 1 (as it always does, but no homes are threatened and there are 3 other ways out of town.

Cal Fire has and engine and personel on both side of the flooded road (as they always do) in case of emergeny.
