In this webinar, Vivian Rennie of Central California’s KSBY TV, discusses the impacts of atmospheric rivers on California's Central Coast this January–and how to cover severe events in areas that don’t normally experience them. She introduces the science of atmospheric rivers, focusing on the January 9th, 2023 event that caused widespread flooding, evacuations, mud- and rockslides, and infrastructure damage as well as three deaths–even as it filled drought-parched reservoirs.
