American Red Cross PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) — The rain is finally easing in California after nine consecutive atmospheric rivers off the Pacific Ocean saturated the state since New Year's Day. The back-to-back storms may leave behind more than $1 billion in damage up and down the state after the devastating flooding, more than 500 landslides, closed highways, sinkholes and damage to infrastructure.  This would be the first billion-dollar disaster this year following the $18 billion in weather and climate disasters in 2022.
