1997 Flood Evidence in Yosemite Valley. Silt and sand flooded from the river overflowing its banks and up to 400 yards from either side of the river channel. Whereas the media and the park staff focused on the "devistation," the silt and sand provide new material and habitat for new forest growth. Out of chaos comes order.
The January 1997 flood of the Merced River (flooded/flooded from the watershed/floodplain of the Merced River) occurred from December 31, 1996, to January 5, 1997, throughout the Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park, Mariposa County, California, US.
