Californians warned latest atmospheric river storm ‘direct threat to life and property’

An ominous warning from the National Weather Service says millions of people living and working in California need to prepare for a "direct threat to life and property" from the latest atmospheric river storm that is impacting the Golden State from Monday into Tuesday.

This comes after a deadly bomb cyclone produced flooding rain, debris flows, damaging winds and large waves in the region last week.

This latest storm will affect nearly the entire state. Heavy rain will bring a significant threat of flooding from the California-Oregon border southward into the Los Angeles Basin.

According to the FOX Forecast Center, the flooding threat from this storm will be far more serious than that seen from the previous storm.
