‘Catastrophic’ Impact: Hurricane Hilary Downgraded, Mexico and California
The historic storm heading to southern California and the new warnings
Of just how catastrophic it could be.
Hurricane Hilary is thrashing parts of Mexico right now and is on track to hit California as a dangerous tropical storm.
The first there in 80 years. Major cities bracing for the worst.
This is a very very dangerous and significant storm.
Flights are already being cancelled and national parks are closed.
Why this storm could be so devastating?
It is likely to weaken to a tropical storm before it hits,
Something that hasn’t happened there since before world war ii.
Right now, hurricane Hilary is battering Mexico hitting the resort
Towns like Cabo san Lucas, and cities like Tijuana where so many migrants are currently staying.
Nearly 30 million people across six states are bracing for potentially devastating flooding.
The storm could bring a year’s worth of rain in just 48 hours and the dry, desert lands across
The southwest won’t be able to absorb it all.
Officials are already warning some residents to prepare to evacuate.
Hurricane Hilary bearing down, slamming parts of Mexico.
Now barrelling north towards the u.s.
In Cabo San Lucas, heavy rain pounded the tourist hot spot.
And tonight, in southern California, this dire warning.
Residents from San Diego to palm springs, bracing for disaster filling sandbags to protect
Against potentially catastrophic floods.
Ust a few inches of rain in desert areas like palm springs can be catastrophic
Because of the sun-baked, dry hard soil and sand which doesn’t easily absorb water, sending
Flood waters rush onto roadways and into neighborhoods.
But it’s not just Rai officials say the storm could cause life-threatening rip currents, deadly mudslides, and
Even tornadoes residents now making a run o grocery stores, shelves emptied, as people race to stock up on Essentials.
Air traffic is already in jeopardy. Southwest Airlines cancelling all flights in and out of the palm
Springs through Monday morning national parks closed, too,
Including death Valley, Joshua Tree, and others across southern California,
Communities are on edge, as the storm inches closer.
Hurricane Hilary as expected now down to a category 2 with 110
Miles per hour wind.
As we get into tomorrow, making landfall as a cat 1 storm, and becoming a tropical storm as it
Threatens parts of southern California, bringing with it ample amounts of rain as far
North as Montana through the next couple of days.
The flood alerts are up for 26 million people, including l.a., san diego, las vegas, and as far
North of as Boise.
We have catastrophic rain happening here as we get through
The day on Sunday, that’s the timing, Sunday afternoon specifically into Sunday evening.
We’ll see potentially upward of 10 inches of rain, east of the
L.a. and san diego mountains that’s the bull’s eye of the
Most excessive rain we’re expecting.
The winds, 30 to 50 miles per hour gusts, but the highest elevations could see wind gusts up to 80 miles per hour, downed
