Robert Perea, The Fernley Reporter

Lyon County is experiencing localized flooding ​throughout Central Lyon County, forcing the closure of several roads.

In Silver Springs, Opal Avenue, Topaz Avenue and the Tahoe Avenue are currently impassible and county road crews cannot do any repair work until the water stops flowing.

In Dayton, ​River Road at Cardelli Road, Fort Churchill Road from Riverview Elementary School to the Nevada Automotive Test Center and Break-A-Heart from Highway 50 to Fort Churchill Road are closed.


County manager Jeff Page said all drainages are flowing water and staying in the banks at this time. Lyon County officials urge the public to keep all flood mitigation efforts in place. Sandbag locations have been left open since the January flooding. Lyon County crews continue to monitor roads and drainages and will continue to report any problems. There have been no reported fatalities or injuries and no evacuations are in place. Lyon County officials have been briefed by the National Weather Service and understand that flooding may continue throughout the week. ​

​Fernley mayor Roy Edgington said no issues have been reported within the city, but he said city crews are monitoring areas where flooding is known to occur.
