Western US Must Prepare for a Bomb Cyclone
SHARE

The wrath of nature can be like a tyrant who doesn’t spare anybody. Trying to bypass it is useless, although plenty of people would be naive enough to try. Another solid proof is approaching fast, unfortunately.

According to a new article from USA TODAY NEWS, a bomb cyclone will hit the western part of the US this weekend. Storms, heavy rain, as well as feet of snow will hit various parts of the USA.

Watch out for the “bomb cyclone”

Judging by its name, you’ve already guessed that the “bomb cyclone” is nothing but pleasant and welcoming. Thanks to AccuWeather, we have a pretty good idea of what a bomb cyclone is. Meteorologists describe it as a fast storm that grows in intensity with central pressure that falls by a minimum of 24 millibars in less than 24 hours.

Flash floods, as well as dangerous debris flows, will broom the western part of the US.

Paul Pastelok, who is an AccuWeather forecaster, declared as quoted by USA TODAY NEWS:

The pattern unfolding this week to next week may be one of the biggest series of storms for the rainy season for California, but there is still potential for a couple of bigger storms over the winter.

Emily Heller, who’s a meteorologist with the National Weather Service from Sacramento, declared as cited by the same source:

This is definitely going to be one of those ground-soaking events.

How would you prepare for nature’s fury manifested through the upcoming cyclone? Feel free to tell us in a comment!
