After months of scorching hot temperatures, Los Angeles County was graced by rainfall at the start of November, signifying the start of California‚§™s wet season. The Associated Press reports that the recent storm was so strong, it caused several nearby counties to issue flood and mudslide warnings that fortunately didn‚§™t come to pass. However, weather experts told the Guardian that this year‚§™s wet season won‚§™t be enough to stave off the drought that grips the state.They added that while the average annual rainfall in Los Angeles County is 15.6 inches, the state received a measly 5.85 inches last year. Consequently, it could take a few more years for the rainfall amounts to ‚§Ĺnormalize‚§. Still, the coming of the wet season is a cue for county residents to start preparing their homes for flood and water damage.
