Today the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, with a lift by the California National Guard, toured the flooded and super saturated areas of Northern California along the #Sacramento River.

Northern California’s rivers are expected to be in flood or danger stage for much of the early part of this week. Including Sacramento, Feather, Tuolumne, San Joaquin, Cosumnes, Mokelumne, Merced rivers and the Yolo Bypass.

Be flood ready and prepared with the potential for short notice of an evacuation order by local authorities. Be sure to check your local area for wireless emergency alerts that can come straight to your phone!

    Please the next time you go out will you take video of Oroville, Yuba City and Marysville? We do not have a good idea what is going on around us. We have evacuated once and looking like we may have to again with the storms coming in. We sure could use eyes we can trust. So many rumors swirling and our whole town is frazzled here in Yuba City.

    I agree with the comment up top. I live in Yuba City and think it would be helpful for all of us if you could please do a video for our area.
