RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) - At the First United Methodist Church in downtown, they were bringing out boards to block off water which might rise from the river.

"Be prepared - the first storm in 97 caught us all unprepared and unaware. and we realized all of mother nature's forces," churchmember JeffSpalin said.

During that first storm the surge seeped through windows dropping four inches in the church basement. Now they've set up committees to help keep that from happening again.

The Flood Authority says Reno-Sparks sees a major storm about every decade. Some causing serious damage - like in 1997 which cost more than $700 million.

The people that got flooded out before in lower Sun Valley better prepare too. The flood in 2006 caught you off guard and I ain't going to feel sorry for you this year if you don't prepare yourselves.
