Your world: Instagram documents 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
