Pacific Storm: California faces drenching rains from back-to-back atmospheric rivers | Oneindia News

California is bracing for a double onslaught of Pacific storms, fueled by atmospheric rivers, that are set to bring heavy rainfall and raise the risk of widespread flooding.

The initial storm hit the West Coast, stretching from Oregon to Northern California and the San Francisco Bay area, with showers and gusty winds.

Termed "Pineapple Express," these storms originate from warm, subtropical waters near Hawaii.

The first storm, expected to intensify in the Bay area, will bring 2 to 5 inches of rain in San Francisco, with snow forecast in nearby mountains, prompting flood watches and high-wind warnings.

How Did '4/20' Become a Holiday for Weed? [Video]

How Did '4/20' Become a Holiday for Weed?

How Did '4/20' Become a Holiday for Weed?. One common theory is that it stems from a California criminal code for those who distribute the drug. According to CNN, California's 420 code is actually for obstructing entry on public land. The state's medical marijuana program was created from a bill with the number 420. Oaksterdam Cannabis Museum's Chris Conrad says "4/20" started as a code in Marin County, California, at San Rafael High School. In the 1970s, a group called "The Waldos" would get together at 4:20 PM to smoke pot. The time of the day was convenient as it was right after school ended with no parental supervision just yet. "4/20" became a code word that allowed them to notify each other in front of unsuspecting parents. From there, the phrase likely spread across the country

10 Surprising Pi Day Facts

10 Surprising Pi Day Facts. In honor of Pi Day on March 14, here are 10 facts about the essential math constant. 1. Because pi is an infinite number, every single digit will never be determined.

Phase One Investigative Maui Wildfire Report , to Be Released Next Month. ABC reports that seven months after deadly wildfires devastated Maui, an investigative report will be released on April 17, 2024. Hawaii Attorney General Anne Lopez commissioned the Fire Safety Research Institute (FSRI) to conduct an independent investigation alongside several local agencies. The first phase of the investigation is meant to analyze how the disaster unfolded during the first 24 to 72 hours, as well as its aftermath. . The report also includes a comprehensive timeline of events. . According to the AG's office, the FSRI research team ran into unexpected delays while gathering information critical to their review. . In November of 2023, subpoenas were served to the Maui Emergency Management Agency, the County of Maui Department of Public Works and the County of Maui Department of Water Supply. Those subpoenas demanded materials relevant to the investigation, including documents and photos, as well as video and audio recordings. Being able to review all of the data, which is extensive, has a tremendous impact on the comprehensive analysis of the fire incident and our recommendations to make Hawaiʻi a safer place to live, work and play, Steve Kerber, Ph.D., PE, vice president and executive director of FSRI, via ABC.

Supreme Court Considers Letting Cities , Punish Homeless for Sleeping Outside. On April 22, the Supreme Court will hear a case out of Grants Pass, Oregon, which has a population of less than 40,000, NPR reports. . 'Grants Pass v. Johnson' seeks to challenge two 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rulings which found fining or jailing the unhoused to be cruel and unusual punishment when they have no other alternative. 'Grants Pass v. Johnson' seeks to challenge two 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rulings which found fining or jailing the unhoused to be cruel and unusual punishment when they have no other alternative. But Grants Pass argues that public health and safety are dependent on camping restrictions that are commonly found across America. . The city contends that homeless encampments pose a danger to those living in them, as well as to families and children. This is because the encampments are often filled with people who need mental health and drug addiction resources. Advocates for the unhoused say that criminalizing sleeping outside is counterproductive. . Punishing someone for doing something they have no control over, no ability to not do, is not going to end that status. In fact, not only does criminalization not work, it makes matters worse. , Ed Johnson of the Oregon Law Center, via NPR. A criminal record and debt from fines would make it even more difficult for a homeless person to find housing, says Ed Johnson of the Oregon Law Center. But many cities don't have enough permanent housing to offer. Grants pass could use about 4,000 more housing units, while the national "deficit is in the millions," NPR reports. The shortage has caused rents to skyrocket, which is a main driver of homelessness
