With river levels rising, California resident hopes his home stays dry

Rod Huber says there’s still mud in the ceilings of his industrial style farmhouse from a 1997 flood.  With river water rising, Huber hopes history doesn’t repeat itself.  The river will rise above flood stage after midnight Sunday and continue to rise to near 55.8 feet by early Wednesday morning. It won’t fall below flood stage until early Friday morning, according to the National Weather Service.  When Huber bought the California home in June, he had hopes to turn it into a bed and breakfast. Construction crews remained hard at work Sunday as the water inched closer to his home.  “They told me it gets to my door at 59, 58,” Huber said. “We'll ride the storm out if you will." Huber has a plan to remove all of the appliances if need be. In the meantime, he said he’ll be keeping an eye on water levels.
