Sacramento, CA — Weather forecasters say the latest in a series of unusual spring storms will spare the soggy San Joaquin Valley.
That should reduce the danger of levee breaks, but will raise river levels across Northern California. Crews in the San Joaquin Valley have protected saturated levees with rocks, tarps and sandbags. But forecasters are cautiously optimistic no more levees will fail in the state´s central region.
The Sacramento River valley and coastal rivers north of San Francisco will have heavy rain and high water over the next several days, but no widespread flooding is expected.
