SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - Water continues to flow from the Keswick Dam in Shasta County and continues to cause potential flooding concerns for residents downstream.

Right now, officials are releasing 30,000 cubic feet of water into the Sacramento River per second and that number could go up to 50,000 cubic feet per second on Thursday. 

Officials say people living along the river and downstream of Redding need to be aware of the winter storm conditions and take precautions such as sandbagging their homes. 

The Office of Emergency Services says they are in constant contact with the Bureau of Reclamation and are prepared for any situation.
