Rain Plunders Sonoma County Levees

SCHELLVILLE, CA — Thousands of acres of farmland around

Schellville remain covered by water that poured in through breaks

in an intricate maze of old levees Monday.

The Sonoma County levees, many constructed 50 years ago, have

been in a slow state of decay for years and landowners say the

fields flood with regularity.

The flooding covers about four-thousand acres of farm land and

vineyards, but has not threatened any homes.
