I don’t know about Sacramento, but here in Yolo we have avoided any major flooding. Although mudslides are still blocking roadways, some powerlines have fallen and some communities are still partially submerged in water no large-scale damage is expected – at least not today.

I just talked to an emergency services spokesman for my city and he said water levels peaked at 1 foot below the levee and then decreased sharply throughout the night, losing 10 feet of water within hours. So even though there are still several roads closed due to flooding, the majority of us escaped any problems. I hope this holds true for the rest of the region…
