Floodplain development, flood prediction and inter-agency coordination are the main themes of this investigation. "We uncovered documents proving that in their haste to approve plans for two public schools in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., state education officials ignored state emergency managers from another agency who cautioned that no adequate evacuation plans existed and that constriction should be halted. We also exposed flawed reasoning the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers used to argue that flood risks in the area were minimal. Reputable flood experts say as many as 20,000 homes have been constructed on flood-prone lands located near high mountain canyons.
