Your world: Instagram California rainstorms

Your world: Instagram California rainstorms. As we reported earlier today, a series of strong California rainstorms have brought much needed rain to the Golden State and eased worries about the ongoing severe drought. While the windy, wet weather was good news for the environment, it was less fun for residents, who in many places endured substantial flooding. For a closer look at first-hand accounts of the California rainstorms, we turned to the best of Instagram.

A week ago @taylor_shoeman and I drove over these bridges and he asked if I had ever seen water or if it was just a dried up sandy river bed. Good to know they built these bridges high enough for a reason. The weather here certainly is different from back east, that’s for sure. #californiarain #atmosphericriver

An El Nino-strengthened storm brought widespread rain to drought-stricken California on Tuesday, triggering flooding that clogged roadways, and authorities warned residents about possible mudslides.

This flooded vineyard sign said, “irrigated with reclaimed water. Do not drink.” So I stopped #kayaking down the street to take in some fresh water from the sky. #sebastopol #sebastopolflood #californiaflood #roadclosure
