The multi-day storm that caused severe flooding across the North Bay this week has closed dozens of businesses, many of them heavily impacted by flooding and other damage.

Guerneville and the surrounding areas were hit especially hard, with the worst flooding seen along the lower Russian River in almost a quarter century.

Riverside resorts took direct hits, and downtown shops and eateries saw floodwater pour in through front and rear doorways. Few businesses were spared.

Further east, The Barlow, an upscale shopping district in Sebastopol, was also overwhelmed by floodwaters from the Laguna de Santa Rosa, affecting more than half of the development’s 30 businesses.

According to the Russian River Chamber of Commerce, here are the Russian River area businesses that are closed, but opening soon:
