Heavy rains have caused a levee to break in Monterey County, resulting in significant flooding and the evacuation of 2,000 residents.
The breach has grown to 300 feet, and a second breach has occurred.
While the water is starting to recede due to the breaches acting as a relief valve, water levels are still high, and the next storm is expected to bring even higher levels.
Rescue teams are in place, and between 150 and 170 rescues have been performed, mostly on those who drove into high water and got stuck.
Agriculture, including strawberry and raspberry crops, could be impacted by the flooding.
This is the second time in 28 years that the levee has failed, and frustration is growing over not being allowed back into flooded areas to check on homes and loved ones left behind.
