The big storm has come and gone, leaving behind a path of destruction.
The clean-up effort began Monday in parts of the North State, but some are worried about the chance of even more flooding.
The flood waters subsided in the Churn Creek bottom late Sunday night, but with the ground still saturated and creeks still swollen, residents are worried their homes may be in danger again.
For the second time in a week, Bob Rich and his son were installing sand bags around their home Monday afternoon.
“That’s where the water was right there,” said Rich, pointing to a mark about a foot and a half off the ground inside his home.
Bob knew his Green Acres Lane home was at risk of flooding but wasn't prepared for this.
“It looked like a river, it looked like a mini river in my opinion,” said Rich.
On Sunday, residents say Green Acres Lane was covered in two-and-a-half feet of rushing water.
“I could not even get down the road, he had to come down with my four wheel drive truck,” said Rich.
The flooding started before 8 Sunday morning and stopped just short of badly damaging several homes.
“Our floors are just full of mud, we cleaned up most of the water, there is a lot of mud, we are still cleaning that today,” said Debbie Myer, a nearby resident.
Myers is re-thinking her decision to move here three years ago.
“I think we are covered insurance wise, but however, we have made a decision that we probably will move,” said Myers.
Vegetation dammed up nearby Churn Creek causing the flooding, county public works crews dealt with a portion of that problem on Monday.
“Like what we have over here right now is debris up against a bridge, we had a log come down the creek, it can dam up against a bridge and cause water to back up,” Troy Bartholomei, Deputy Director of Shasta County Public Works.
But by law, crews can't remove most of the natural growth in the creek bottom, which means Bob Rich won’t be resting easy for a few days.
“Until that creek gets cleared out, we are going to flood,” said Rich.
