Roughly 225 Sacramento public and private schools educating about 100,000 students fall within the area that is likely to flood every 200 years, according to a Sacramento Bee review of city of Sacramento and federal data. Roughly 250 Sacramento elderly care homes and nursing homes, most of them small residential homes, fall within the 200-year floodplain. Those homes serve about 5,000 elderly residents.
