The storm that blew through the North Bay – toppling trees and downing powerlines – is just a preview, forecasters say, of the heavy storms we can expect this winter due to El Niño. The weather condition is on a lot of people’s mind these days. While it's forecast to bring much needed water, it is also expected to be one of the strongest on record. That could mean flooding, loss of power and landslides. KRCB wondered what the North Bay is doing to prepare.
