Drought-Stricken California Prepares For Flash Floods
This wildfire season has turned out to be one of California’s worst in recent memory. More land has burned so far in 2015 than in the same period in the past decade. And with California four years into a drought, the fires can grow fast and large.
With such parched and fire-scorched land around many mountain communities in California, that could mean a greater chance of flash floods this fall and winter, especially if El Niño brings big storms. Valley Public Radio’s Ezra David Romero reports.
