Transcript for Winter Storms Force Thousands to Evacuate
that dangerous weather out west. Thousands are being told to evacuate from those floods in California. Kayna Whitworth is in the middle of it all. Good morning, kayna. Reporter: Hey, robin, good morning, the Russian river is rising again for a second time this week. Already the floodwaters have impacted 500 homes in the area and prompted evacuations and rescues. It was just yesterday an 83-year-old woman had to be rescued from her home right nearby. Now, this is already the biggest rain event that this area has had in more than a decade and we have more rain on the way. Now, on top of the riding waters, officials tell me they are very concerned about the high winds in the forecast. They say this ground is saturated and that could be a problem for the big redwoods in the area. Oh, sad to hear that. Thank you very much.
