Levee Break – San Francisco?

With all the news about Central United States flooding and Mississippi levee breaks, I thought that it might be instructive to run a levee failure simulation that could pique interest of folks in Central California.

The example is hypothetical, but imagine….

(1) A levee spanning the Golden Gate where the Golden Gate Bridge now stands.

(2) San Francisco Bay drained to bottom, and the region developed and cultivated like the lands of Santa Clara Valley further to the south.
