SAN ANSELMO (KRON) -- Water levels and speeds are rising in San Anselmo Creek as the storms continue to pour water onto Marin County and other parts of the North Bay.

KRON 4's Charles Clifford reports as of Wednesday evening the creek was at four and a half feet with the water flowing through downtown San Anselmo at increasing rates.  Still the creek remains well below flood stage of closer to 12 feet.

Marin County has sandbag stations set up to allow property owners and residents to begin to protect themselves.

KRON 4's Terisa Estacio drove along the Highway 12 corridor past the city of Sonoma where she found CHP officers and Sheriff's deputies setting up roadblocks to keep motorists out of areas with rising water.  Some drivers got tickets when authorities saw them blow past the barricades.

The water stood several feet deep on roads leading off Highway 12 in Sonoma County by late Wednesday.
