SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Northern California residents recovering from a series of wet, windy storms won't get much of a break. The National Weather Service says another significant system is expected to hit parts of the region today, with rain continuing into the following day. National Weather Service meteorologist Marty Rausch says as much as 5 more inches of rain could fall before the storm moves out. The National Weather Service says the rain could be especially heavy at times in areas north of Redding and across the Sierra. Still, it will be nothing like the downpours that left between 15 to 20 inches of rain in some of those areas over the five-day period that ended Sunday.
Meanwhile, the weekend storm could have been a lot more destructive. So says P.G. & E's Paul Moreno, who says the utility company learned a lot from the past experiences. He says the worst is behind us. He does caution however that people should watch for ground saturation in this next storm, which can topple trees.
