Atmospheric Rivers and Flooding

By: SmartFinancial
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - Jan. 23, 2024 - PRLog -- These rivers can carry up to 15 times the amount of water in the Mississippi River, according to studies. They have caused flooding, mudslides, loss of life and damage to homes and belongings.

Last January, thousands of uninsured or underinsured home and car owners, as well as business owners, faced extensive losses because they didn't have the right insurance. Many were unaware that they needed flood insurance to be covered for these events, not just home insurance or commercial property insurance. Car owners without comprehensive coverage also had to eat their losses.

Last year, most researchers agreed that atmospheric rivers are expected to grow 25% longer and 25% wider due to climate change. They will also affect other parts of the country, not just California. Severe weather, it seems, is wreaking havoc everywhere.

Preparing for Atmospheric Rivers: What To Do Before the Next Flood

Experts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Climate Prediction Center say there is a 35% chance that an atmospheric phenomenon will hit the U.S, specifically California, in winter 2024. Last year's rainfall and unprecedented snowfall were not just a fluke, and it's important for residents to start preparing for the next atmospheric river now because seven million Californians are at risk of experiencing flooding.[1]


Consider what's at stake, if there's a severe flood in your house, condo, apartment or business. You'll have to evacuate if it happens, but there's no way to get your things out or to protect the structure itself. And what about your vehicle(s) and business property?
