With El Niño expected to bring significant storms to California in 2016, Caltrans is focusing on preparedness for emergency response. One of the ways the department prepares is by conducting simulations of natural disasters, which tell us what we're doing well and identify areas that would benefit from additional attention. In the video below, you'll go behind the scenes of Floodcast 2015, a drill that simulated a 1,000-year storm.
Speaking of storms, are you ready for El Niño? Visit storms.ca.gov to find out what you need to do to be prepared. Remember: be aware, be prepared, take action!
