The Good News
Numerous sources have confirmed a large El Nino will hit California this fall and winter, bringing grandiose rand and thunderstorm through the fall and winter months. Experts claim this El Nino may even relieve California of it's severe drought and replenish our water reservoirs. NASA climate analyst Bill Patzert says himself that this El Nino "looks as promising as anything I've seen in the last...18 years."
The Potentially Worrisome News...
While this could be a great turning point for California's climate, even if only temporarily, there is no guarantee. The placement of the rain and thunder storms is the key factor in their impact on the drought. In addition, El Ninos often carry with them intense downpours that cause flooding and mudslides.
What This Means for You:
It is vital for homeowners to be aware of their environment and any potential dangers your area might face. So, while you celebrate a little early about our soon-to-be drought relief, it's a good idea to learn about the flooding and mudslide history in your neighborhood so you can prepare yourself an your family.
