Sky FOX40 Shows Storm Aftermath
Three days of rain means lots of water for the Sacramento valley.
On Friday, a section of Scott Road near Sloughhouse became part of the river; on Monday the water level was lower and crews were out working to clear the road of mud and debris.
Roseville and Rio Linda saw a lot of flooding on Sunday; 24 hours later there are still some pools of water, but a lot of it has receded.
Still, the valley accumulated a lot of water.
The American River has noticeably more water in it on Monday than Thursday.
But the real example of how much rain fell can be found at Folsom Lake. When Sky FOX40 flew over on Thursday the water was low and the banks were huge. At the time the reservoir was only at 37 percent capacity.
On Monday there was a lot more water, shrinking the banks; however, even with all that rain the reservoir is only at 50 percent capacity.
From Thursday to Sunday, the City of Sacramento said crews cleared about 7,470 drains.
