L.A. County remains dry, most of Southern California avoids Northern California storm system.
As of 8 am Wednesday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department reported that no new evacuations had been issued in Los Angeles County during the past 24 hours. A map showing the current and projected rain fall shows the county as having only a short amount of rain to spare.
After a few days of heavy rain, the rain was light and scattered by Tuesday, but the National Weather Service said that the situation is “expected to continue to improve” as the storm slowly comes out.
There are several things to watch over this storm. As a starter, a lot of wind (a storm that strong would be strong for wind too). Also, stay away from power lines. Many power outages have already been reported in the area. If you do manage to get home, make sure you have your electric bill handy.
A storm chaser reported this video from the San Bernardino National Forest in California. The video shows a dust devil swirling around trees. It was captured on camera by a tree at the edge of the forest.
In this video, we see a dust devil, created by the wind blowing along tree limbs. This is one of the main reasons why power lines and trees are good targets.
