Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Monday declared his second state of emergency stemming from winter rainstorms that threaten to overburden California’s system of levees, aqueducts, reservoirs and rivers.

Les Harder, the agency’s deputy director, told the governor and other officials “all of our reservoirs are full and we are not able to contain all the water.” Harder also said “levee failures are quite possible” and that Firebaugh, a town in Fresno County, “is in danger of being flooded.”
