Sutter County levee still holding

SUTTER COUNTY, CA - An emergency patch to a levee along the Natomas Cross Canal appeared to be holding Thursday despite the severe storm hitting the region.

Work crews used a plastic tarp to stabilize the levee after a 240-foot crack developed Tuesday. The crack prompted an emergency declaration from the Sutter County Board of Supervisors, and because of its location at the north end of the Natomas basin it has many residents in both Sutter and Sacramento counties concerned about potential flood risk.

Thursday's high winds slammed the canal's waters into the south side of the levee throughout the afternoon, but as of dusk Thursday the makeshift patch  appeared to be holding.

Northwest winds and patchy low clouds overnight lead to Thursday morning's foggy conditions during the commute. But skies cleared and the sun will be shining by afternoon as a high pressure ridge builds in across the state, according to News10 meteorologist Mellisa Paul.

Highs for Thursday will be near 60 and north winds will calm throughout the day leading to a foggy Friday forecast in the valley. But the fog should clear late in the day Friday for an afternoon of sunshine and highs remaining near 60.
