CHICO, Calif. - Many roads in the North State experienced flooding, evacuation orders and warnings.

One of those evacuation orders was on Alberton Ave.

Sheriff Deputies were knocking on doors around 6 tuesday night.

Action News Now spoke with a deputy who said a majority of the people in the evacuation order areas stayed home.

Neighbor, Brian Bodark, has a property near the levee, but he did not evacuate.

"We do have a big pump that we pump out into the field if necessary and actually I pump it back into the levee and it's just the other side of the bridge is lower and we're thinking if it doesn breach its going to to that way," Bodark said. "Rain is supposed to start again next week so that on top of this could be another disaster, so we're just pumping water. It'll take quite a bit if this side of the levee does go it'll take quite a bit for us to get flooded."

Alberton Avenue neighbors are working together to compile sandbags to prevent any more flooding.

We have an updated list of evacuation orders and warnings on our website under storm tracker.
