Thursday’s major storm that pounded the Bay Area will go down in the record books as one of the wettest days in the region in more than a decade.
It’s being called #HellaStorm in typical NorCal lingo, and #Stormageddon, albeit sarcastically, but the storm mentioned as the potential “Storm of the Decade” delivered Thursday, flooding homes and businesses, plunging over 100,000 into darkness, delivering waves of nearly 30 feet to Mavericks, winds above 135 miles per hour in the Sierra, and rainfall of several inches. At the peak, 6.6 million Bay Area residents were under an emergency flash flood warning, and the Russian River is still forecast to rise 32 feet by Friday.
While the Bay Area braces for what is forecast to be the biggest storm in 6 years, if not 16 years, any hyperbole is nothing compared to what the UK is facing in a storm called the “Storm of the Century,” and a “Weather Bomb” packing 40-50 foot waves (that’s over 15 meters for Anglophiles), and 70-80 mile per hour winds.
