Flood warnings and wind advisories are still in effect as another powerful storm is expected to move into Northern California Thursday.

On Tuesday heavy rains deluged homes and caused rockslides that shut down highways and bridges. The National Weather Service says the risk of flooding is high along the swollen Russian River, which overtopped its banks during a series of storms last month.

Strong winds with local gusts topping 60 miles an hour are predicted in parts of the Bay Area and south into the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Crews rescued residents from rising floodwaters Tuesday in Marin County, where a mudslide toppled trees and split a hillside house in half. Heavy flooding was also reported throughout Fresno County.
