Yes, yes, the rains have arrived – finally! That’s the good news.
The bad news is that the rains came on the wings of some quite remarkable storms; we’re just through the second wave of winds with gusts of over 72 miles per hour and two more storm waves are expected until Friday of this week.
Down at the coast jetties and piers are closed, a sensible precaution in the face of 15-foot waves. There was some flooding of streets, an urban and small stream flood advisory plus a coastal flood watch is out.
The most damage is expected from mudslides in the areas which burned down last summer. Hopefully it won’t come to that…
