This years’ El Niño is set to be the strongest on record so far. El Niño’s are recorded on a scale of 0 – 3. The two largest text book El Niño’s occurred in 1997-98 and 1982-83 and were recorded at 2.2 and 2.3 respectively. Right now, this years, if it holds together, is going to be even stronger than that.

At a recent workshop, nine speakers from local, state and federal government came together to share planning, preparation and response activities.

Public works crews around the county are already clearing storm drains across the county and are stepping up their efforts in preparation.

County officials are urging all residents to take all necessary precautions to protect property and themselves.
