WATSONVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Forecasters are warning of more flooding and potentially damaging winds as a new atmospheric river pushes into a swamped California. Tuesday’s storm brought potentially damaging winds with gusts up to 70 miles per hour. There were also numerous reports of falling trees and power outages. Nearly 27,000 people are under evacuation orders statewide due to flooding and landslide risks. The National Weather Service says the storm is spreading light-to-moderate rain over northern and central California, but is moving faster than expected and most of the rainfall will shift southward. So far this winter, California has been battered by 10 previous atmospheric rivers.
