River Gauge High on Cache Creek
(Woodland, CA) – While river gauges on Cache Creek are currently showing that the creek, north of Woodland, will be at a “danger stage” around 8:00 p.m. tonight, the creek is not expected to overtop and instead is forecast to go down again around 10:00 p.m. State and local personnel experienced with flood management are monitoring the situation and are prepared to address any levee issues.
At this time, the city of Woodland and surrounding communities are not expected to experience more than the seasonal, localized flooding they are already experiencing. Should the situation change, Yolo County and the City of Woodland will alert residents.
In the meantime, for those who would like to stock up on sand and sandbags, they typically can be found at local hardware stores. The City of Woodland will be supplying sand and sandbags for Woodland residents and business owners at 655 N. Pioneer Avenue in Woodland until 6:00 p.m. today, and encourage residents to come with gloves and shovels.
