Remnants of Ida dump rain on orientation

Flash flood watches and wind advisories are again in place for much of the Northwest. Up to 3–5 inches of rain are possible starting at midnight on Thursday, and with the ground saturated with rain from recent hurricane Henri, flash flooding will be much more likely. Watch out on your morning commutes, and stay indoors for orientation events if possible! In addition, large gusts are expected to bring power outages to New England. After a couple days, we can expect the sun to clear things up a bit.

As Hurricane Ida has come barrelling through Louisiana, millions are without power and evacuation orders are still in place. It’s been quite the hurricane season, and we must be prepared for additional storms to come — the hurricane season isn’t over yet. As the gray clouds continue rolling in, though, we can warily look forward to the sunnier days ahead.
