Daniel Swain for Washington Post — Severe storm expected to unleash flooding, winds, massive waves in California


UCLA climate scientist Daniel Swain discusses the severe storm expected to hit California for the Washington Post, emphasizing the potential for flooding, damaging winds, and massive waves. Swain highlights the concern of windstorms, particularly in the central coast and Bay Area, with gusts reaching at least 50 to 60 mph. “Much of the central coast, including portions of the Bay Area, should expect a major and possibly widespread damaging windstorm,” Swain said.
