There's a bunch of condos along the river that have garages that will flood in addition to the bottom floor of the Fashion Valley mall. There are cars already stuck.

The SD River is above the moderate flood level hitting 13.75 as of an hour ago. That's the 4th highest level in the last 100 years. The forecast peak of 14.3 feet would be the third highest. The record was set in January 1916 during the Charles Hatfield aka "The Rainmaker" flood. Back then 19 feet would have been a lot wider than it would be today so I can't even imagine how much water that would be.

What I find remarkable is the amount of rock that has been eroded. I read that the bedrock turned out to be softer than expected.

They have a live web cam of the big O'dam repairs. That way we can make sure the work is being done properly...

HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
National Weather Service HANFORD CA
1111 AM PDT Sat Jun 17 2017

...THE MERCED RIVER AT POHONO BRIDGE IS FORECAST TO REACH
FLOOD STAGE SUNDAY NIGHT...

The combination of above normal temperatures and rapidly
melting snow over the higher elevations of the Sierra during
the next several days will bring an increase in water levels
and flows along rivers and streams.

The California-Nevada River Forecast Center is forecasting the
upper Merced River in Yosemite National Park to crest just
above flood stage at Pohono Bridge by late Sunday night.

I'm surprised the snowmelt isnt high. I guess they can get away with the spillway as it is for the Summer.

The inflow has been steady flat line and seems to come back to life the last two days. Snow melt with minimal thunderstorm activity.

Here's a look at the last 119 days... Might be a little difficult to read on a small screen.

Sis just came back from Kings Canyon and said the water was flooding the trail at points on the canyon floor. She also got dumped on a hike from a tstorm, which I'm assuming is contributing to the flow. There's signs posted all over about not going into the water.
