Powerful remnants of a typhoon are beginning to strike the Pacific Northwest, bringing strong winds and heavy rainfall.
The series of unseasonably strong storms will continue to impact the Pacific Northwest and Northern California this weekend through Tuesday, October 18.
The storm could not only cause flooding, mudslides, power outages and property damage to Washington, Oregon, and California. Sixteen trillion gallons of water are forecast to drop in the area, two trillion more than Hurricane Matthew brought to the southeast U.S. coast last weekend. The remnants stem from Super Typhoon Songda, which swirled around in the Pacific before curving away from Japan earlier this week.
