Multiple trailer parks in Tehama County could be flooded by Saturday morning.

The National Weather Service in Sacramento has issued a flood warning for the Sacramento River at Tehama Bridge, where minor flooding is expected.

The flood warning goes into effect Saturday morning, when the water is expected to rise above flood stage, and will remain in effect until further notice.

By Saturday morning, the turnaround site at the railroad tracks on Tehama/Vina Road may become impassible. Minor flooding is expected in the River Inn Mobile Home Park in Los Molinos on the east side of the river, along with Los Molinos' Pelhams Bay Fishing Resort, and Snug Harbor Mobile Village in Red Bluff.

As of Friday morning, the river at Tehama Bridge is flowing at about 200 feet but forecasters expects it to rise 13 feet by Saturday morning, which would bring it above flood stage. Certain low-lying areas near the river, including roads, homes, and fields can expect minor, localized flooding.
