Weather History
On this date in 1937, the dirigible Hindenburg burst into flames and came crashing down in New Jersey, killing 35 people. The landing of the aircraft was initially delayed due to a thunderstorm. Although the reason for this diaster is still unclear, it is possible that a tiny spark from the thunderstorm ignited the highly flammable hydrogen.

... Flash Flood Watch in effect until 11 PM PDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Hanford has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for a portion of central California...
including the following areas... Kern County mountains...
southeastern San Joaquin Valley... southwestern San Joaquin
Valley and west central San Joaquin Valley.

* Until 11 PM PDT this evening

* scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to develop
this afternoon and evening. Some storms may produce very heavy
rainfall in a short period of time resulting in localized flash
flooding. Areas that received heavy rain yesterday will be more

* Impacts... flooded or impassable roads. Downed trees... possible
power outages... small stream flooding.

to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
