Flooding continues along the Sacramento River due to increased water releases from Shasta and Keswick dams

SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - Saturday water releases from Keswick and Shasta dams ramped up again.

The Bureau of Reclamation upped the water flow from 25,000 to 30,000 cubic feet per second beginning Saturday at 8:00 a.m.

The surge of extra water caused many people at the Marina RV Park on Park Marina Dr. to evacuate.

Action News Now reporter Mario Montalvo spoke to one man who said his space is under water right now. He said he had plenty of warning, so he was able to get out safely.

Light scattered showers are on tap for the start of your Thursday, and I'm tracking heavier rain ahead from Thursday afternoon through mid day Friday. We'll have a lull in our wet pattern late Friday through early Saturday, but even heavier rain and snow will return this weekend and persist into next week. Major travel impacts will be possible across northern California from this wet weather.
