Mandatory Evacuations In La Contenta

Sponsored by:

Valley Springs, CA — About 150 homes are being evacuated in La Contenta.

A dam that supports an irrigation pond for the golf course has failed in several places.

Calaveras County officials are monitoring the situation but have called for the mandatory evacuation of homes in case the dam gives way entirely.

The American Red Cross now has shelters set up at the Veterans Hall and nearby Valley Springs Elementary School.
