California’s atmospheric river storms dropped 7,600,000,000,000 gallons of rain, but it was no drought buster
Federal forecasters estimate that the atmospheric river storms that hit parts of northern and central California from October 23-26 dropped 7.6 trillion gallons of rain — which can also be expressed as 7,600,000,000,000. … Comparatively little of the rain fell in greater San Diego, where the soil also is unusually dry. The atmospheric river fell apart as it moved south.
