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.
