— From member station KQED, Ancel Martinez visits Rio Nido, California, a vacation spot an hour north of San Francisco, to see how residents are coping with El Nino. The heavy rains of the past month have caused landslides that have completely destroyed about a dozen homes so far. Many more in the community are threatened, and most residents have been evacuated. Statewide damage is estimated at 300-million dollars with the worst yet to come. Experts say the El Nino weather pattern could last another two months.
