Yosemite Falls 'Roars Back to Life' as Atmospheric River Hits California

A powerful atmospheric river drenched Northern California on October 24, with the National Weather Service issuing flood warnings.

The downpour broke the one-day rainfall record for downtown San Francisco, while also making it the area’s second-wettest October on record. Some rainfall totals passed one foot.

The storm led to 143,000 power outages, according to Pacific Gas & Electric.

The National Weather Service said heavy rain, high-elevation snow, and gusty to high winds were forecast for central and Northern California, the Sierra Nevada, and the Great Basin on Monday.
