Sacramento prepares for floods

SACRAMENTO, California (KCRA) – Hundreds of people filled sandbags at a fire station in North Highlands on Tuesday as concern spread about a storm approaching Northern California.

Sacramento County officials have opened 10 sandbagging stations, and the city of Sacramento said it plans to open two more by Wednesday afternoon.

In 1995, Rio Linda’s Dry Creek flooded over its banks and damaged hundreds of homes.

Since then, flood officials have made improvements and bought-out some of the most vulnerable homes.

However, residents continue to be concerned about a potential repeat of the disaster.
