The California Office of Emergency Services released video on Thursday, January 12, showing water drained from the Sacramento River by opening a weir in West Sacramento.

<a href="http://www.oesnews.com/flood-control-gets-weird/" target="_blank">The Sacramento Weir’s opening</a> diverted water from the swollen river after heavy rains last weekend to alleviate possible flooding in Sacramento. The water goes into the Yolo Bypass, which turns the floodplain into an ocean of water.
