CA: L.A.'s latest storm brings heavy flooding ( Storm #3 Wed #4 arrives tomorrow )
Los Angeles Times ^ | January 21, 2010 | Ann M. Simmons, Rong-Gong Lin II and Jeff Gottlieb

Posted on 01/20/2010 10:38:37 PM PST by Ernest_at_the_Beach

Traffic is a nightmare, with portions of the 710 and 405 freeways inundated by several feet of water and the Grapevine and Cajon Pass closed by snow. Evacuations are ordered for more than 1,000 homes.

The third day of an intense series of winter storms brought widespread flooding, huge waves and more evacuations throughout Southern California, with another powerful front expected to hit this morning.

Wednesday's storm lacked the dramatic tornado conditions of Tuesday's, but it dropped significantly more rain.

Streets from San Pedro to Sunland flooded. And the afternoon commute turned into a nightmare when portions of the 405 and 710 freeways were inundated by several feet of water, stranding several cars. The Grapevine was closed for much of the day because of snow, and officials Wednesday night shut down Interstate 15 at the Cajon Pass. A rock slide closed California 1 at Mugu Rock in Ventura County.

There were reports of hail and scattered power outages. At least one waterspout off the coast of Hermosa Beach prompted city officials to call residents, telling them to stay indoors. And a dozen children were rescued in separate swift-water rescues in La Habra and Yorba Linda.

We’re getting plenty of water up here in NoCal also (we’re about an hour north of SF). We’re out in the county and our roadside ditches are about 3.5 ft deep. Normally they’re dry. Since yesterday, they are completely full and slopping over onto the roadside. Tomorrow, I’m sure there will be roadblocks on some of the flooded roads around here.

Officials Urge Evacuated Residents To Leave Homes

*************************************EXCERPT******************************

Jan 20, 2010 7:47 pm US/Pacific

LOS ANGELES (CBS) A third powerful Pacific storm pounded California with heavy rain and snow Wednesday, prompting mandatory evacuation orders for 23 additional homes in La Canada Flintridge.

A flash flood warning for Los Angeles County expired at 6:30 p.m. However, mud and debris flows are still possible as they can occur even after the heaviest rain has ended.

Additional heavy rain is possible later tonight through Thursday night and the flash flood watch remains in effect for the burn areas.

County officials said the latest evacuation orders included homes on Ridge Cliff Lane, De Valle Road and Haskell Street.

By early Wednesday, authorities had issued mandatory evacuation orders for residents of 489 homes in La Canada Flintridge, La Crescenta and Acton, just ahead of the storm's expected midday arrival, along with nearly 200 homes in parts of Glendale.

About 262 homes within the communities of Alpine Way, Zachau Canyon, Haines Canyon, Riverwood and Blanchard Canyon in the Southern Tujunga area were also ordered to leave their homes.

Again up here in Modesto, the ground is so saturated the rains won’t percolate into the ground. Almond and Walnut trees toppled by the saturation and high winds.

City crews can’t keep up with the demand to pump out storm drains etc. Partly cloudy at the moment, but that’s due to change.

Wonder where I put my wet suit?!?

Typical “news” reporting. The folks in SoCal have been through this many times. My daughter lives in a canyon North of LA and says the roads are flooded but that’s really just about normal for el nino weather. 1000 homes out of a million isn’t much.

Oh, it could be worse here! I remember one New Year’s Eve a few years ago — we got something like 1.5” overnight. Our sump pump under our house usually shoots out water for about five seconds, then the bucket fills up (taking anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours) and then the process repeats. That New Year’s Eve when we had all the rain, our pump ran *continuously* for five hours! That was a heck of a storm.

We are. Yosemite and the Sierras are suppose to be getting a couple of feet of snow in the next couple of days. They are saying that we will be getting a short break from Saturday afternoon and most of Sunday. Then another storm on Monday. War already ahead of the normal snow totals.

Weather Matrix Blog - California Storm: 4 Feet of Snow, Pressure Record?

The lowest pressure ever measured in the state is 28.85" Hg according to Chris Burt, author of Extreme Weather. As of this hour, the pressure is already 28.92" at Crescent City in the northernmost part of the state (and 28.88 on the Oregon coast). But tomorrow night is when the big storm swings in further south, and if you believe the NMM forecast model, it will be 28.80" on the central coast, breaking the all-time record (in other words, a stronger storm has not hit the state in recorded history!).

I realize such weather in SoCal causes problems, however, if all that snow holds until spring, hopefully, the farmers in the Central Valley will not get screwed again by the Libtard politicians and get the water that was agreed to years ago.

What the yahoos did this year for the cute little (non-native) marsh minnow, really hurt the US and the farmers there since 1/3 of our citrus, nuts and other produce comes from California.

Well guess that the drought is pretty much over.

How is the little fish doing over in the valley area where they were denying water to the farmers?

It appears that today will similar to the Tuesday event when we had several reports of waterspouts and weak tornadoes. Below is the outlook from the Storm Prediction Center: http://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/outlook/day1otlk.html

...SRN CA INTO SRN NV AND AZ...
EMBEDDED TSTMS AND LEWPS SHOULD ACCOMPANY AFOREMENTIONED FRONTAL
BAND AS IT CROSSES THE SRN CA CST THIS AFTN/EARLY EVE. GIVEN
STRENGTH OF DEEP WIND FIELD /50 KTS AT 700 MB AND 70 KTS AT
500/...THESE STRUCTURES MAY YIELD DMGG WIND. IN ADDITION
...DEPENDING HOW STRONGLY BACKED THE LOW LVL FLOW BECOMES...
TORNADOES AND WATERSPOUTS MAY OCCUR. THE DEGREE OF LOW-LVL BACKING
WILL BE GOVERNED BY THE INTENSITY OF SECONDARY CYCLOGENESIS IN THE
L.A. BASIN ...IN ADDITION TO TOPOGRAPHIC INFLUENCES. ALTHOUGH IT IS
IMPOSSIBLE TO DEFINITIVELY ASSESS THE FORMER...THE STRENGTH OF THE
WIND FIELD...FAVORABLE TIMING RELATIVE TO DIURNAL CYCLE...AND
APPARENT INTENSITY OF UPR SYSTEM IN SATELLITE IMAGERY TOGETHER
SUGGEST THAT THREAT IS SUFFICIENTLY HIGH TO WARRANT UPGRADE TO
SLIGHT RISK.

Humboldt Bay area had another 1” in the past 24 hours bringing the total to 3.9” since Sunday and there is more rain forecast. There is a hugh and series cold trough coming down the coast from Siberia and headed to a beach near Ernest. I just told my first wife that if y’all think rain is bad wait until the whole state is overwhelmed by record snowfall only to be followed by record warm rain melting it all.

Been there and seen that (1964)...

I’ve been watching the latest Pacific Storm to hit you and the cold front behind it that you can see here:

http://www.weather.com/maps/geography/pacific/index_large_animated.html

On those Rogue River jet-boat trips I take the guide will point out the high water mark of the ‘64 floods. It is incredibe to see exactly how high the water went. Let’s see, in ‘64 I was a Sophmore in H.S. in Belleville, Illinois trying to learn Algebra 1 and trying to figure out how to get Ruth to forget about the dime.

To my friends in California I leave with with this:

Dude, me alegro de su hacer de la lluvia para que no robar nuestra agua!

I don’t doubt you in the reasoning.. it’s just incredible to me. ‘we want to free up state funds (that aren’t there) to pay for stuff, so let’s declare a disaster next Tuesday that might or might not actually be needed’ cha-ching!

and no one is up in arms. It boggles my mind the way CA works.

When a friend of mine in El Centro and I communicate we do so in Spanish as that is the native language in Southern California. :) I am subtlety encouraging you to learn Spanish at same time telling you that “Dude, I pray that you get plenty of rain because I don’t want you to steal our water”.

BTW, I took French in H.S. and my college transcripts show I had a “B” in advanced German. That’s another story though.

Storms Continue Their Attack on Southern California, Southwest

*****************************EXCERPT**************************

The last and strongest in the train of Pacific storms will unleash a new round of flooding rain, mudslides, feet of mountain snow, damaging winds and severe thunderstorms on C

By Alex Sosnowski
AccuWeather.com
The last and strongest in the train of Pacific storms will unleash a new round of flooding rain, mudslides, feet of mountain snow, damaging winds and severe thunderstorms on California and the Southwest into Friday.

Is is an all out weather war being waged by the atmosphere on the Southwest. The storm rolling through now is the caboose in the storm siege, but may bring the greatest risks to lives and property thus far this week.

The risk flooding rain and severe thunderstorm threat will last into this evening in California. However, it will take until Friday evening before the storm winds down over Arizona.

Click on this image for the latest expected rain and snowfall from the storm.

Downpours can quickly flood urban areas such as city streets and underpasses. The persistent rain will continue to make rivers, streams and normally dry washes raging torrents.

If you drive through flooded areas, not only to you run the risk of damaging your vehicle, but you could be swept away by the waters.
