The water is finally beginning to recede from the coastal areas today, and the scale of the disaster is setting in. A lot of damage, evacuations, and homes lost. A lot of all-time rainfall and flooding records have been broken. Something we also expect to see more of with our warming climate, which will bring this region warmer and wetter winters. This event in particular has as much to do with the warm temperatures as with the amount of precipitation itself. Normally most of this would have fallen as snow in the mountains instead of becoming runoff.
A shot I took down in Skagit Valley two days ago, as the flood water crossed highway 11.

The situation is also dire up in BC. Vancouver and many surrounding communities are effectively isolated from the rest of Canada.

An amazing day on Saturday! Long Island had never before seen a November tornado (period of record beginning in 1950) and on Saturday we saw 4 tornadoes on the same day on Long Island including one that touched down right in my town!
That's pretty crazy! How strong were they?
