Swollen streams continue to flood farmland

Even though the calendar turned to spring more than three weeks ago, the impact of winter storms lingers in California orchards, vineyards and farmland near the state's swollen streams.


West of Modesto, the Tuolumne River elbowed its way into one of Nick Blom's walnut orchards. The trees have been in water up to 2 feet deep for almost three months, he said.


"I think they're pretty much going to be done," Blom said. "They're starting to bloom, but without any oxygen down at the root zone, I think they're probably going to be finished here in a little bit."
