California Braces for Yet Another Atmospheric River
California is preparing for yet another atmospheric river, which is expected to bring heavy rain and pose a risk of flooding and landslides. This comes just days after the state was hit by a powerful atmospheric river that caused widespread flooding, resulting in hundreds of evacuated residents and damaged properties.
According to meteorologists, the current atmospheric river is expected to affect Southern California hardest, with the possibility of record-breaking rainfall in some areas. This has raised concerns about the potential impact on communities already struggling to recover from recent floods.
In the Bay Area, residents are also bracing for the incoming storm, which is expected to hit on Monday night. This comes just days after some properties were affected by a soil slide caused by the previous atmospheric river. Some areas are still recovering from the damage, and this new storm could cause further stress to the region.
Authorities are urging residents to stay vigilant and be prepared for possible flooding, landslides, and debris flows. In addition, they are advising people to stay away from the flooded areas and not to attempt to drive through high water.
People are also advised to take necessary precautions, such as clearing drainage systems and gutters, securing outdoor furniture and objects, and having an emergency kit ready.
The state has been experiencing an unusually wet season, with several atmospheric rivers hitting the area in recent weeks. Experts say this is due to a combination of factors, including warming ocean temperatures and climate change.
