Flooding in California Affects RV Park

Thu Feb 23, 2017

CORNING, California - Water levels in Tehama County caused for several roads and RV parks to flood Saturday. Although South Avenue was closed to traffic starting at the Woodson Bridge in Corning, spectators weren't discouraged from crossing it to snap a few photos.

On the other side of the bridge, the Woodson RV Park was severely flooding. Its picnic tables and parking signs were almost completely underwater due to recent storms and controlled releases from the Shasta Dam, according to a story by KRCR News.

Consequently, Sacramento river levels downstream have been increasing higher and higher, threatening homes.
