You guys are gonna get 6 DAYS RAIN,im telling you now,dont underestimate steady rainfall over a few days,please take precautions now.the big problem weve got in the uk is that there used to be large flood plains that we not allowed to be built on around rivers,but in the 1940s the goverment decided that it was safe to build houses on the flood plains,now everytime it rains for a couple of days straight the houses built on the flood plains, flood.so these guys properties are completly unsalable,no one will buy them,hell these folks are gonna find it impossible to get flood insurance.....wtf are they gonna do??? Anyway,was just wondering if you have the same problem in the usa??? if you live by a river or body of water in cali.....watch the hell out,after 6 days rain its gonna get real bad . [/quote] If it were not for the fact that Don Pedro was just about empty, Woodrow Reservoir just about empty, the delta being so low these past few years..I would agree with you, but that is not the case. I was just up trout fishing at Moccasin a week ago and the creek was so low the trout were all bunched together in small pools..this means we can handle a lot of rain fall here and still get little to no flooding at all..if any. The biggest concern I can see if it stays steady like this is the areas next to the Delta or canals as they tend to get the most run off and flood fairly quickly..been watching the local news station here and nothing major reported atm.. For us that live here this is a welcome site as they are trying to sell off our water rights to the city folks in SF so maybe, just maybe this will delay their little plan to drain this valley dry... [/quote] Sell off water rights to SF? SF has plenty of water, its very own reservoir in the hills. The city barely has any room for more population, doubt the city could outgrow its water supply. The drought maybe a blessing. Dams are likely far below capacity and maybe able to hold back much of what would otherwise head through the valley. [/quote]
Pineapple Express directed "atmospheric river" of high precipitable water air to be rained out over N. California. [
