SAN FRANCISCO >> Officials are warning that residents returning to homes damaged by flooding should be prepared to evacuate again as yet another powerful Pacific storm takes aim at Northern California.

Colusa County Assistant Sheriff Jim Saso said Sunday that floodwaters are receding in the farm community of Maxwell, where dozens of people sought higher ground during Friday’s rain.

Nobody was hurt as crews used boats to rescue people from a low-lying residential neighborhood.

Another round of heavy rain is expected to move in later Sunday.

Authorities say the San Joaquin River is reaching flood stage and warning residents in Manteca to be ready to evacuate.

Officials say the water level at Lake Oroville continues to fall despite the stormy weather. Damage to spillways at the dam forced the evacuation of 188,000 people last weekend

    • Look, the world is now cooling! Keep writing those checks to Al Gore, those chem-trails and other government tactics are working to fight Global warming allie!

      Just remember to work hard allie, millions of illegals on welfare are depending on you!!!

      • If you know anything about global warming it goes from one extreme to the other, such as hot/cold, droughts/floods, etc. And, yes, other government tactics are working to fight global warming.

        • Well, some people don’t know the difference between climate and weather (usually the same people who end up mistaking their mouths with their footwear).

  • Sensationalist reporting.
    The article implies the WHOLE state of California is doomed.
    The picture is outside of Williams, CA approximately 55 miles north of Sacramento.

    Most of CA won’t be raining.
