Torrential rains caused California's Russian River to overflow, turning several towns into islands. The river flooded some 2000 homes, businesses and other buildings. Local residents have to move around on kayaks and canoes.  About 4,000 residents were ordered to leave the area as part of the mandatory evacuations, the Associated Press reported.
