Warm Weather Has Farmers Worried About Flooding

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — State officials are concerned about the potential of flooding in farmlands along the upper Sacramento River as forecasters predict the possibility of heavy rains in the region.

Levee repair work has been hampered by wet weather in Tehama County, and authorities fear upper Sacramento River farm fields will be flooded.

Meanwhile, cooler weather has temporarily slowed snowmelt in the high country, causing the waters of the Merced and Tuolumne Rivers recede.
