Water releases from Keswick and Shasta dams in Shasta County have more than tripled since Wednesday
And officials plan to release even more water in the days ahead.
Now, one mobile home park in Redding has already asked people staying there to evacuate
The Marina RV park on Park Marina Drive is made up of an upper and lower level.
It took about 12 hours to evacuate about 25 people staying on the lower level Tuesday and Wednesday.
Maintenance worker and resident Garry Derossett says they were able to accommodate about six campers on the upper level, but everyone else had to temporarily relocate.
“We have a lot of family members that are taking up some of their family members,” he said. “We have some of the other trailer parks in town that are filling up. We don't expect this to be a long process. I mean, usually it runs between two and three weeks. This is probably going to be a week process.”
Derossett says they keep in close contact with the Bureau of Reclamation and closely monitor river levels throughout the rainy season.
He says this flooding is something that happens every few years, so they're prepared to go as soon as they get the word.
Releases are expected to increase between 30,000 and 35,000 cubic feet per second (CFS) over the weekend.
And there’s a possibility that number could rise up to 55,000 CFS depending on the intensity of next week’s storms.
