High Water Tests River Channels In California

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — High water will test river channels and levees in much of California, as spring rains continue to fall.

In the Mother Lode several creeks and streams have already over flown; however the larger reservoirs have safety measurements in place to prevent flooding.
