Gurdwaras Help Yuba City Evacuees

Several gurdwaras in Sacramento, California’s capital city, have come forward to offer meals and shelter

Several gurdwaras in Sacramento, California’s capital city, have come forward to offer meals and shelter to the evacuees of Yuba City, which consists of a sizable number of Indian-Americans, following fears of Oroville Dam collapsing. Some 188,000 residents, including around 20,000 Indian-Americans, in the River Valley below the Lake Oroville Dam, 65 miles or about 104 km north of Sacramento, were ordered to move away from their homes in mid-February when one of two damaged spillways appeared in danger of imminent collapse from severe erosion, American Bazaar online reported.
