Bomb Cyclone to Hit California Days After Deadly Floods
(Worthy News) – California is set to get battered by another intense rainstorm, just days after a previous storm caused severe flooding throughout the Golden State.
According to a forecast from AccuWeather, a significant storm is set to intensify rapidly over the Pacific Ocean en route to California on Wednesday through to Thursday. Due to the rapid nature of the storm’s development, it has been categorized as a “bomb cyclone,” a colloquial term for explosive cyclogenesis, the process in which storms reach cyclone strength in a short period of time outside of tropical regions. The storm is expected to bring further flooding, power outages, and powerful winds to a state already ravaged by severe weather.
Over the New Year’s holiday weekend, various parts of California were hit with significant precipitation, including heavy rain, snow, and wind. As a result of this, flooding was reported in certain regions, with photos and videos of submerged cars emerging out of San Francisco by Saturday afternoon. [ Source: NewsWeek (Read More…) ]
