What happens when the levees break?

Hosted by

Northern California is feeling a little relief today after days of rainfall. Integral to the state’s protection from flooding is a vast system of levees; California relies on more than 13,000 miles of them. According to experts, the levees may not be up to the task of managing all the water from the recent storms.
