[/quote] The ark storm effect is the real disaster storm wise. Coastal cities can drain and would have only transient effects. The central valley on the otherhand has very poor access to drainage, it would make Katrina look like nothing. You'd need the full airlift capability of the military just to get food in and perform rescues. [/quote] Fred, you are dead-on correct. The central valley is surrounded by mountains (Sierras) to the east and the west (Altamont and surrounding). It creates a bowl effect. Also, as I stated previously, our levees are in horrible shape (Juliebean is correct - they have shored some of the levees up but not all of them). The hub of our water system lies in northern and central California. Should the levees fail, especially in the Delta, Southern California could find their water supply disrupted and even stopped if the damage is bad enough. I just hope that none of this happens.
