Meanwhile, Lake Tahoe residents are also getting ready for the incoming storm. The Tahoe Daily Tribune reports that the storm is gathering moisture as it heads towards the area, and officials are warning residents to be prepared for potential flood risks.
Furthermore, LiveNOW from FOX reports that residents throughout California should also brace for the possibility of more rain and flooding threats as the atmospheric river storm approaches.
The storm’s impact on the area is expected to last throughout the weekend, and residents are advised to stay updated on the latest weather forecasts and emergency alerts.
