A mandatory evacuation of the La Contenta subdivision went into effect overnight in Calaveras County.

Officials called for the evacuation of some 150 homes due to dam failures at the Peachtree irrigation pond for the La Contenta golf course.

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

Also Cosgrove Creek has overflowed its banks causing major flooding throughout Valley Springs.
