Default California under water

I pulled up the dailymail from the UK, has photos from California's state of emergency for the hard hit areas. Granted the southwest needs the rain; but, not like this!

California under water: Already-flooded Golden State braces as 'monster' storm gets set to dump two inches of rain an HOUR.

California is bracing for another monster storm tonight after days of relentless rainfall forced officials to evacuate hundreds of homes in America's so-called Golden State.

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger announced a state of emergency for the worst hit areas today and rescue crews frantically tried to clear flooded roads before more thunderstorms, hail and even small tornadoes hit the region.

So much for global warming. The plus for my brothers and I is the awsome snow pack coming to ski on.

We get rain like that year round here in Astoria. Not as harsh but rains all the time. Feel bad for all those folks.

Yeah, we got some rain, and it wasn't bad. They evacuated 220 homes in the La Canada area, just as a precaution, but didn't lose any houses. There were a few houses with mud damage due to flash floods in San Bernardino County, but we survived. If we can handle the idiot politicians here, the rain is nothing!

It has been raining nonstop since Friday, but at the west end of the valley it has not been terrible. We have had way worse before.

The El Nino of 1998 was other worldly.

Does mudslides fall into one of those categories is it in a category of it's own?

My friend lives in Encino and I haven't been in contact with him. Do you know if it is flooding there? I don't know what direction it is from Los Angelas.

Being involved with the American Red Cross, Encino is perfectly fine. There are quite a few large trees which have fallen down as a result of the wet soil, and they have knocked out power to about 1000 homes throughout Southern California.

Edison, our local power provider, is already working on restoring power to these homes, and all should be up and running within the next day or two.
