State of emergency in California as massive storm unleashes flooding

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has declared a state of emergency and drivers are being asked to stay off the roads as a major series of storms carried by an atmospheric river is dropping massive amounts of rain across a wide swath of California from Los Angeles to the Oregon border.

Some areas could get more than 10 inches of rain in the next day or so. Meteorologists are warning it could be deadly.

In Sacramento County, there’s a race to repair breached levees.

“If that water comes up real high again, with those kind of flows, we’re going to start having trouble,” said Leland Schneider, who is with the Cosumnes River Levee District.
