California is flooding. California has a long history of droughts and wildfires, which means that the land cannot absorb all of the rainfall that is being pounded onto it. “Rain and snow fed by an atmospheric river pummeled California for days, causing severe flooding…” states Ruders at U.S. News. An atmospheric river is a narrow corridor or filament of concentrated moisture in the atmosphere. These deadly storms are flooding cities and farmsteads and is going to add to the damage that California has suffered and only make it worse in the future.  Over hundreds of thousands of homes have been pummeled from their power. At least 22 people have been killed so far according to Terry Castleman from the Los Angeles Times, “The series of winter storms that has battered California has proved dangerous and deadly, causing at least 22 storm-related deaths across the state.”
