Thousands ordered to leave as California river rises

A rain-swollen river in Northern California was overflowing its banks early on Wednesday, triggering authorities to order the evacuation of thousands of residents in the area. Authorities in Sonoma County issued the evacuation orders as the Russian River threatened to flood. The evacuation orders affected nearly 20 communities with a population of more than 4,500 people.

After this disaster clears up, they should build spill overs that would allow flooding rivers to fill reservoirs.
