SALINAS, Calif. (KGO) -- Widespread flooding in Monterey County has prompted evacuations throughout the area.
ABC7's drone footage shows the area south of Salinas -- along River Road and near the Chualar River Road -- taking on water quickly. The Salinas River has overtopped its banks, with many of the ag fields underwater.
The Chualar River bridge is closed by Caltrans, with concerns about water getting too high. Oakland fire's swift water rescue boat is in the area, ready to help with flood evacuations.
