SoCal Due for Atmospheric River-Fueled Storm This Week

2/27/2019 (Permalink)

  • What is an Atmospheric River Storm?

Just like a river on the ground, an atmospheric river is a river-sized water pocket in the sky carrying "as much as 15 Mississippi Rivers" of concentrated water vapor. Through this last week of February 2019, Southern California is expected to see significant moisture from such a phenomenon.  

  • Moisture to be expected

Depending on where you reside, SERVPRO of Cerritos/Hawaiian Gardens recommends avoiding unnecessary travel and staying safe during this wet week ahead.

Moisture levels are likely to reach above two inches in San Diego, Riverside, and Orange counties while residents in higher elevations are expected to see as much as ten inches.
