Low Rainfall Taking Toll
It´s lack of rainfall that has given Southern California one of the worst threats of wildfires in history. As the 12-month rain season ends today, Los Angeles has recorded less than 4.4 inches of rain, compared to normal of more than 15 inches. San Diego´s rainfall over the past year has been 30% less than usual. Northern and Central California rains during the 12 months were closer to normal, including more than 40 inches at Eureka.
