“All hands on deck across the entire state” | California hit with 11th atmospheric river

California’s Office of Emergency Services is hard at work, around the clock, coordinating with law enforcement and other first responders across the state.

A Cal OES spokesperson said it’s like a constant chess match, trying to figure out the best place to move and station crews.

The continuous rain and snowmelt is having a major impact on communities up and down the state.

“We have 40 of our 58 counties that are under a state of emergency right now,” Cal OES Multimedia Manager Bryan May said. “So it’s really all hands on deck across the entire state.”

Across California, there are 16 different rivers above flood stage.

“We have 27,000 people that are under evacuation orders right now,” May said. “That number is changing all the time and very well could go up throughout the day.”
