Daniel Swain for New York Times — Atmospheric River Drenches California, With More Storms on the Way

UCLA climate scientist Daniel Swain discusses the current atmospheric river storm in California for the New York Times, sharing his concerns about the potential for a major regional flood event. While the ongoing storm has caused damage with fallen trees, flooded roads, and disrupted travel, the focus is on preparing for an even more severe storm expected over the weekend. Swain is “becoming increasingly concerned regarding what has the potential to become a major regional flood event somewhere between Santa Barbara and San Diego counties.”
