MODESTO, CA - The Tuolumne River through Modesto has jumped its banks as water releases from Don Pedro Reservoir continue.
But water officials said the levels shouldn't rise much higher, and so far no homes have been impacted by the high river.
"We're concerned. There's a lot of water up there. The next 100 days is a critical time period but it's manageable," said Walt Ward with the Modesto Irrigation District.
Even though temperatures are rising in Northern California, Ward said the warmer weather won't be too abrupt to cause a sudden snowmelt which could overwhelm Don Pedro.
"I see fairly mild conditions. There's no big warm-up," said Ward.
Two trailer parks south of downtown Modesto are most at risk when the river rises beyond its banks, but those mobile homes are still several feet above the river. Residents don't seem concerned.
