The National Weather Service (NWS) forecasted disastrous flooding across the lower Salinas River valley, a significant agricultural region south of San Francisco Bay, as a result of the most recent system, which is expected to bring heavy lower-elevation rain, significant mountain snow, and strong winds, along with another surge of Pacific moisture.

The statement from the White House said, “A major disaster exists in the State of California and ordered Federal aid to supplement State, tribal, and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by severe winter storms, flooding, landslides, and mudslides.”

Following the declaration, temporary accommodation and repairs will be provided to those in need as part of federal money for relief.
