CoreLogic® is monitoring the ongoing flash and riverine flooding in California The New Year brought unseasonably wet conditions to California. A series of atmospheric rivers and frontal systems, including a bomb cyclone, slammed into California starting Friday, Dec. 31, 2022 and continued through the week of Jan. 9, 2023. The storm systems included multiple atmospheric rivers that provided excessive moisture, resulting in heavy rainfall that saturated much of California and caused localized riverine and flash flooding and mudslides.
