Californians Urged to Prepare for Incoming Storms

Secretary Mark Ghilarducci of the California Emergency Management Agency (Cal EMA) Tuesday urged Californians to prepare for significant rainfall and high winds beginning tomorrow and lasting throughout the weekend.
“Even though California has a robust emergency response system and a significant number of resources, it’s critical that the public take a personal interest in preparing for this storm, and the storms that will follow throughout the winter season” said Ghilarducci.

According to the National Weather Service, a major shift in weather pattern will bring wet and windy weather to Northern California with high rainfall rates, first on Wednesday and again on Friday.

Mud and debris flows are likely around burn scarred areas in Shasta, Butte and Plumas Counties, and local power outages are possible as a result of downed trees from gusting winds. Small stream flooding is also likely with weir overflow and runoff.
