I hope everyone in the path of this storm here is doing well.  Living where I live I’ve been through a few hurricanes and many tropical storms and neither are any fun…and that’s in a non-desert setting that is pretty well equipped the deal with heavy rain.

Used to live in Oxnard.  The area is like a saucer, so with heavy rain everything floods.  The Santa Clara River is a major waterway, but around Oxnard many homeless live in the waterway (it's pretty much channelized) so they better have gotten out of there.  I see that Wings Over Camarillo got canxed.scott s.

 

San Diego Fire and Swiftwater Rescue had to pull 13-people out of the fast rising / fast moving San Diego River Sunday afternoon.  It was a homeless camp that is normally a few feet above the trickle of water that passes for a river in August.  No injuries but they all lost everything.

The flooding and landslides from this are horrific.   I watched an interstate highway and it's concrete barriers transform into a river,  with thousands of sleeping truck drivers stuck in a traffic jam.   And a river of mud slowly pushing a field of boulders down a ravine into a valley below.     I've been studying geology since the pandemic,   and it's pretty wild to see nature reshape the earth in real-time.  The average person just doesn't understand how powerful the forces of water can be.  

All the water in such a short time causes dangerous spikes in the hydrologic pressures of ground soil.
