Record Rainfall Due to Storm in California: Is October Drought Season Over
A strong storm in California helped extinguish the wildfire, which has been a major disaster for the state for weeks. However, the storm also caused record rainfall, landslides, and flooding, as well as de-energizing thousands of homes.
The storm began on Sunday and ended only on Monday, and people were happy and full of hope that the dry season was over. However, experts have not yet confirmed that this is true, but rather insist that the state needs more rain for a longer period of time. According to a report from the Meteorological Service, about 11 inches (28 cm) of precipitation fell near Mount Tamalpais and 4 inches (10 cm) in San Francisco. Along with the storm, there was a strong wind that knocked down many trees and two rigs on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge. No injuries were recorded due to the timely assistance of the rescue service to people who were in a difficult situation due to floods. Also, the forced closure of main roads to the Mounts can be added to the consequences.
The electricity supply was restored yesterday, but relevant services and groups of volunteers are still cleaning the streets after the storm!
