The National Weather Service is warning that an impending storm could trigger landslides and sinkholes in areas ravaged by wildfires. Meteorologists said yesterday the bulk of the rain will fall across the region from tomorrow afternoon to Thursday morning, with up to an inch forecast for the valleys and as much as three inches in the hills. In Santa Rosa, particularly in the Fountaingrove neighborhood, officials are monitoring the risks the storm could pose, and Mayor Chris Coursey said new evacuations are possible.
