California’s Next Big Rainstorm Looks Menacing From Space

This shot was captured less than an hour ago of another big Pacific storm approaching California. The impending rain is good news for the drought-stricken state, but may also cause dangerous flooding.

“Californians haven’t seen rain and wind this powerful in 3 years,” climatologist Bill Patzert of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory said in a press release.”
