LOS ANGELES — Dog owners in the state of California say that they will keep their pets on leash while the snow melts, even though some areas are in areas with severe flooding.
The city of Santa Rosa, which includes the city of Bloxburg, said on its website that it had closed all public parks to traffic for two weeks.
Residents in other cities have said they’ll leave their pets in their homes for up to two weeks to keep them safe from flooding.
Bloxburg is located along the banks of the Trinity River in a coastal town of about 1,100 people, where temperatures are in the 80s and the snowpack is usually less than a foot per day.
The city says residents are encouraged to use snow blowers and water pumps to make sure they have plenty of space and to be prepared for any snowfalls.
