Heavy rains last Thursday (Nov. 29) dumped 1.31 inches on leaf-clogged Chico, causing flooding in many areas, including the neighborhood around Butte Creek Country Club (pictured), parts of Highway 99, as well several areas within the Camp Fire burn scar. Chico Police sent out Code Red alerts for potential flash-flooding around the city and the Butte County Sheriff’s Office temporarily reinstated evacuation orders for certain areas downstream of the Ridge, including Honey Run Road.
