California has been hit hard with flood-inducing rainfall and an “atmospheric river” which resulted in 2 deaths and evacuation orders for nearly 10,000 people. The storm has brought rockslides and flooding to many areas, with a level 4 of 4 warning of excessive rainfall issued in some regions. Local news sources report that people are being urged to evacuate immediately to avoid potentially hazardous conditions.
The Pineapple Express storm, which caused major flooding and rockslides, has affected California’s central and northern regions, and local emergency responders are working hard to clear the debris and respond to any emergencies. The storm has caused major infrastructure damage, including mudslides that closed several roads in the area. According to a statement from the National Weather Service, the Pineapple Express storm is expected to bring even more heavy rainfall and snow in the coming days.
ABC10 reports that the heavy rainfall and snowfall are expected to continue over the next several days, which will add to the dangerous flooding already occurring in many areas. High winds, hail, and even tornadoes have also been reported in some regions of the state.
The storm and resulting floods have impacted thousands of residents in the state, with many being evacuated as a precautionary measure. Those who haven’t yet evacuated are being urged to do so immediately to avoid being stuck in potentially dangerous conditions as the storm continues.
As the situation continues to unfold, emergency responders are working tirelessly to protect the public and restore infrastructure damage caused by the storm. The public is urged to stay informed and heed evacuation orders as necessary to ensure their safety during this dangerous weather event.
