'Too Much Rain Today': Child Unimpressed by California Floods

A powerful atmospheric river and bomb cyclone drenched Northern California on October 24, with the National Weather Service issuing flood warnings.

The downpour broke the one-day rainfall record for downtown San Francisco, while also making it the area’s second-wettest October on record. Some rainfall totals passed the one-foot mark.

The National Weather Service said heavy rain, high-elevation snow, and gusty winds were forecast for central and northern California, the Sierra Nevada, and the Great Basin on Monday.
