Several storms will roll through the north state during the next several days, though forecasters on Tuesday said the heaviest rain is expected to fall Thursday, likely causing flooded streets as winds gust up to 35 mph.

"If we're going to get a huge amount of water, (Redding's storm drain) system will not handle it," said John Stacher, supervisor of Redding's Storm Drain Utility. "Most systems are designed to handle a 10- or 25-year event. It seems like this is going to be a 100-year event."

People don't listen. They don't want to believe terrible things can happen, even as they are happening. They will say it is no biggie, refuse to plan ahead, and then cry when they are stranded without power or supplies...and bitch and moan that nobody warned them...rant

blocked storm drains are what caused the flooding which ruined the cars of many people I know from NJ and LI

these people were blocks, sometimes a few miles away from the ocean or a river, fww

better to be safe than sorry

move your car to higher ground and walk back home. it's worth it

jmho, and what I do even around here, because TX is prone to flash flooding

Good advice - and here's to hoping people in the area take warnings to heart rather than thinking they know better and becoming statistics. Flooding is no joke - particularly when it's widespread enough to prevent emergency rescuers from getting to stranded people.

I think this thing is going to be pretty big when you consider the amount of cumulative precip they are forecasting, and I think it is silly to discount warnings because it often storms in California. They are calling it an 'atmospheric river.' Better safe than sorry, IMO...
