This is the storm season for the Pacific Coast. Several major storm systems have already come ashore with another major one this week. With steep hillsides and saturated ground, additional rains can cause mudslides. Washington state has seen its share of them in recent days. One just caused a major train derailment outside of Everitt. The amazing video is below… Once these storm systems move east of the Rockies, they reorganize and can cause heavy snows from the Plains to the Midwest and heavy rains and severe weather across the Southeast. That will be happening Wednesday and Thursday of this week and again around Christmas. Be sure to keep tabs on weather conditions for your area the rest of the year into January as the weather pattern looks to remain active.
Here’s the amazing video of the train derailment outside of Everitt. It’s a stunning site. Can you believe someone happened to be taking video of the train when this occurred???
