Description

Sacramento Bee reporters look at the vulnerability of local levees which keep the city from being flooded. The report shows levees in vast disrepair, while flood protection funding is being cut back by state lawmakers. The levees are in desparate need of repair and need to be updated. Many are concerned that there will be a massive flood much like the one in 1997, which killed six people and forced the evacuation of 120,000.
