California Flood Waters Devastate Communities, Prompt Evacuations

Parts of California are being pummeled by an atmospheric river, causing rivers to overflow and roads to be submerged under feet of water.

As a result, 16 million people in the state are under flood alerts, and residents in affected areas have been ordered to evacuate.

The situation is particularly dire in Northern California, where 90 alerts, warnings, and watches for flash flooding have been issued.

Part of the Bay Area and Central Coast are underwater, while the Central Valley is waterlogged.

Swift water rescues have been carried out throughout the state as crews work to save as many people as possible.

Residents in Sanger, California, have been particularly impacted by the flooding.

A nearby river has been rushing rapidly, and much of the community would have been underwater if not for the efforts of residents who have sandbagged and repaired a damaged bridge.

However, other areas have not been so fortunate.

A levy broke upstream of a community in Monterey County, flooding the entire area.

The flood situation has been exacerbated by a recent snow event and the subsequent melting of the snow due to the atmospheric river.

A second atmospheric river is expected to hit the state on Monday, bringing even more precipitation to areas that are already struggling to cope with the flooding.

Residents across California are dealing with the devastating impact of the floods, with many having to take time off work due to the difficulty of getting around.

The power outage caused by the floods has also made life incredibly challenging for those affected.

The deadly weather situation is far from over, and residents are being urged to take all necessary precautions to stay safe.
