Here below are updates and information:
California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Saturday proclaimed a state of emergency Saturday for a large portion of Southern California, as the state prepares for a historic hurricane expected to cause extreme rain and flooding.
The storm, which may pour than a year’s worth of rain on parts of the Southwest, weakened from a Category 2 storm to a Category 1 storm on Saturday night as it advanced toward California, according to the National Hurricane Center. The storm has maximum sustained winds of 90 miles per hour, the center said.
The storm has sped up and is moving faster than expected, now moving at 18 mph, and is currently located 535 miles southeast of San Diego. Hilary is expected to continue to weaken as it moves north-northwestward through cooler waters toward Southern California.
Residents in the Southwest are bracing for “catastrophic and life-threatening flooding” as the system is expected to pummel the region as a rare tropical storm, with the harshest impacts expected on Sunday into Monday.
Flooding rain from the storm will start to arrive well in advance of Hilary’s core of stronger winds. Those winds could arrive as soon as Sunday morning, along with more prolific and dangerous rainfall, according to the National Hurricane Center.
BE SAFE . . .
God Bless us Always,
