Levee Breaks As Storms Pummel West Coast

A ruptured levee sent a frigid "wall of water" from a rain-swollen canal into this high desert town early Saturday, flooding hundreds of homes and forcing the rescue of dozens of people by helicopter and boat.

No injuries were reported in the flood in Fernley, about 30 miles east of Reno, after a section of the Truckee Canal levee up to 150 feet long broke soon after 4 a.m.

Ouch.

That's gotta hurt. Especially at this time of year when it's cold too.
Feel for you all over there. Hope all those affected get things sorted out real fast.

So far, the cause of the broken levee is not clear. If it is down to a failing infrastructure I hope you all scream blue murder at things not being maintained like they should be. If they say it was caused by the rodents, then get a second opinion.
