Storms Bring Risk of Flooding, Damage to California

A series of drenching, powerful storms is lining up from the Pacific Ocean and will roll onshore in the West Coast through the weekend.

The storms bring a risk to lives and property in northern California. The first of the storms and the most mild-mannered of the bunch was reaching the Pacific coast Wednesday.

Successive storms will arrive about one-and-a-half to two days. The pattern will not break off until early next week.
