Rain falling in Southern California threatening areas of drought-stricken state with possibilities of flash floods
These coming weeks, Tropical Storm Kay approaches the north as a Category 1 hurricane, creating a climate crisis-fueled heatwave. Rain has begun falling from far Southern California and far southwest Arizona, with increased risk of flash flooding. In the meantime, wildfires continue to burn in Northern California with increased risks in Oregon. Evacuations were issued, especially with extreme fire behavior and growth. Utility companies such as Pacific Power and Portland General Electric will consider turning off power in some high risk areas to reduce the risk of fire, helping protect people, property, and the environment.
