After years of record drought, #California is now getting more #rain than she can handle. Southern California #Storms on Friday unloaded 10 inches, and Saturday left tens of thousands without power and killed at least five people. The rain left its trail of destruction with flooded highways, downed power lines, and sinkholes. Santa Barbara county has seen more than seven inches of rain in two days, according to the National Weather Service. Parts of Ventura country had more than six inches. Northern California already soaked since January is expecting extra stress on levees, dams, rivers, creeks and streams.Residents are being advised to prepare for flooding and possible evacuations.
