Lots of rain coming down. There was some possible warnings of how El Nino may cause us some unexpected weather. The drought that last five years, and recent wild fires that have devastated parts of the land there could possibly be added soil erosion leading to mud slides and flooding with debris. One of the things they did not mention was in being aware of your surroundings. When you are walking, driving, doing what you do, and around your living spaces…be aware of what is going on around you and the landscape you are living with. Things that you see around you can be a precursor. Some things may never show up on your radar, but there are things that may quite well be there to be seen, that you can take action to deter or avoid.
It is important to be prepared in advance for possible emergencies/disasters. There are steps that people with all abilities can do to help them selves in advance of possible situations. DAC can put you in touch with an organization that helps you make that plan in advance if you want to give one of our offices a call in Chico (530) 893-8527 or Redding (530) 242-8550.
