CITRUS HEIGHTS, Calif. (KTXL) — Following Sunday’s big storm, most of the Sacramento area is cleaning up the damage left behind.

The Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District said they received around 400 calls for service and about 70% of those had to do with the storm.

“It was too much water. It was still raining,” said Big Lots store manager Ken Olson.

Hours and hours of record-breaking rain meant a big mess for Olson on Monday morning. When he showed up to work on Auburn Boulevard in Citrus Heights, he found himself standing in 4 feet of water at the store’s loading docks.
