Authorities have stopped a leak in a levee in California's Central Valley but about 500 people remain under evacuation orders until the area is deemed safe.
There are no immediate reports of damage or injuries but a flash flood warning remains in effect.
There are no immediate reports of damage or injuries but a flash flood warning remains in effect while crews try to patch the breach.
Creeks and rivers are nearing flood stage in California as another rainstorm pounds the area, prompting evacuations and stranding several thousand people in a remote hamlet.
County Sheriff Brian Martin says about 100 homes were affected but more homes along the 75-mile lake shoreline could face evacuation orders if the water keeps rising — and more rain is on the way.
Martin also says about 2,000 people in the remote community of Spring Valley are trapped because one of two entrance roads washed away and mudslides closed the other.
Monterey County has issued mandatory evacuation orders for people living near creeks and rivers as a continuing downpour creates a threat of floods and mudslides.
Forecasters have issued flash flood warnings throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and elsewhere in Northern California.
The weather service has also issued flash flood warnings for the North Bay and Monterey areas as well as south-central Alameda County and southeastern Santa Clara County.
In Alameda County, the weather service reported gauges on Alameda Creek are showing that rapidly rising water levels have surpassed local flood stages in Niles Canyon and a watershed above Sunol Regional Wilderness.
Some Northern California residents are preparing for another powerful Pacific storm by patrolling levees for signs of danger, reviewing evacuation plans and filling hundreds of sand bags.
The San Joaquin River at a measuring station near Vernalis — about 10 miles southeast of Tracy — remained Sunday at "danger stage," meaning it keep
The regular season is winding down, and while the bubble teams are fighting for spots in the NCAA Tournament, teams in the AP Top 25 are jockeying for position in the bracket.
The penultimate week of the regular season features several games that could affect which teams get the highest seeds.
The Wildcats (25-3, 14-1 Pac-12) were ranked behind Oregon in the NCAA Tournament selection committee's preliminary rankings but could be in position for a No.
Instrument-laden aircraft are surveying the Colorado high country this month as scientists search for better ways to measure how much water is locked up in the world's mountain snows — water that sustains a substantial share of the global population.
One-sixth of the world's population gets most of its fresh water from snow that melts and runs into waterways, said Ed Kim, a NASA researcher and lead scientist for SnowEx.
Four sensors will measure snow density: three other types of radar, plus a passive microwave instrument, which detects how much of the Earth's natural microwave radiation the snow is blocking.
Aircraft will take the instruments on multiple passes over two areas in western Colorado, Grand Mesa and Senator Beck Basin.
Water utilities, farmers, public safety agencies and wildland firefighters track the updates closely to help predict how much drinking and irrigation water will be available in the spring and whether they will face floods or fire-inducing droughts.
SNOTEL collects data from individual points, but the "holy grail of mountain hydrology" is a way to estimate the distribution of snow water equivalent across broad mountain landscapes, said Molotch, who is also director of the University of Colorado's Center for Water, Earth Science and Technology.
Government agencies that forecast the spring runoff say satellite data on snow water equivalent would help them, although they base their predictions on multiple sources of information, including rain, temperature and current river flows.
Two points for a team winning in overtime or shootout; the team losing in overtime or shootout receives one which is registered in the OTL or SOL columns.
