In La Honda, right near Pescadero, there was a major mudslide that went down a mountain and ended up closing part of a road. The mudslide was so large that it ended up taking a whole house down with it. Fortunately, the family had noticed a crack get larger and larger so they took their stuff and went to the neighbors house. When the house went down, no one was harmed but the entire house was ruined. A water line was busted and also slightly flooded the area. People in the area are still concerned because of the upcoming weather and the mudslide is still moving slowly. Many people had to come together to help with the problem and support those who had lost a lot. Multiple storms are coming through California and while are drought is being fixed, its causing many disasters. Lots of flooding is happening everywhere and ruining homes and businesses.
This connects to the natural disasters such as the dust bowl and the harsh living conditions during the great depression and how people had to work together to fix a problem.
Do you think this was a bad placement of housing?
How has the drought affected California?
What are some solutions to all the rain/storms happening in California? How can people prepare for the storms so that there is less chance for disaster?
