Tiburon declares emergency after back-to-back storms

The Tiburon Town Council has formally declared a local state of emergency in the wake of back-to-back storms that triggered several landslides and minor flooding earlier this month, enabling the town to apply for state and federal reimbursement for repair costs. The storms, the worst of which hit between Feb. 12 and 14, dumped nearly 6 inches of rain in the area. The rain triggered a road collapse on Vistazo West halfway between the Lyford Drive turnoff and the Old St. Hilary Open Space Preserve trailhead after runoff overwhelmed the storm-drain system and undermined the road bed. The slide has resulted in limited access to eight nearby homes as well as to the trailhead. (Deirdre McCrohan photo / The Ark)
