The National Weather Service (NWS) in Sacramento, California, issued a flood warning for parts of Chico following heavy and persistent rains. The warning will be in place through 8:30 a.m. local time (11.30 a.m. EDT) Wednesday.

The NWS warned the residents that “Small streams, creeks and drainage areas flowing toward the Sacramento River will run high and impact roads and crossings.”

A flash flood warning was also in place for parts of Butte County until 10 p.m. local time Tuesday, after several parts of the city witnessed one to two inches of rain.

The Chico Police Department took to Twitter to warn the residents to stay indoors as much as possible.

“Unless you have to be out please stay off the roads until the rain lets up. We are working diligently alongside @ ChicoFD to keep roadways open,” the department tweeted.

Several gas stations in the city, including the Union 76 on Eaton Road, too shut services, ABC-affiliated television station KRCR reported. Enloe Medical Center in Chico said the severe weather was impacting the telephone lines.

“Severe weather is impacting our phone lines at the medical center. Roads around the hospital are completely flooded and barely passable. If you have a medical emergency and need to reach the hospital you can call 530-342-2255,” the medical center tweeted.

Earlier in the day, a tornado and storm warning was issued for parts of Butte and Glenn Counties. NWS had said though the storm had weakened, accumulating hail, heavy rain and flooding were possible.

Meanwhile, several people took to Twitter to share photos and videos of the flooding.

Some also posted videos of people having fun in the heavy rains and flooding.

A few users showed off their fun side by posting Titanic-themed videos.
