Storms have dumped 24 trillion gallons of water on California, and they are still ongoing.

Since December, California has seen more than 24 trillion gallons of water fall from the sky. More than a foot of rain has fallen in the lowlands, eight feet in the Sierra Nevada. About 1 to 2 inches of rain is forecast for lower elevations and 2 to 4 inches in the hills. A backcountry avalanche watch is in effect for the Sierra Nevada. The last in the series of major storm systems will dive into California on Sunday night.
