What to expect from Hurricane Rosa

What to expect from Hurricane Rosa”

In Los Angeles and Orange counties, surf could build up to eight feet high by late Saturday, and up to 10 feet Sunday and Monday on south-facing beaches.

It's rare for a hurricane or tropical storm to impact the southwestern U.S., but CNN meteorologist Gene Norman says, "These events have begun to increase in recent years".

Rosa still had maximum sustained winds of 85 mph (140 kph) early Sunday and it was centered about 355 miles (570 kilometers) southwest of Punta Eugenia in Mexico.

Hurricane Rosa was spinning toward the Baja Peninsula on Sunday as a Category 1 storm with sustained winds of 85 miles per hour, the National Hurricane Center said. The storm is expected to drop 3-to-6 inches of rain, with isolated spots of 10 inches of rain in the next few days, the weather service said.

Hurricane Rosa is forecasted to turn sharply north and gradually weaken as it heads toward northern Baja California. Authorities in Barbados said they helped rescue several people from a flooded home and schools were cancelled in the nearby islands of St. Lucia, Dominica, Guadeloupe and Martinique.

All that rain can lead to life-threatening flash flooding in the deserts, forecasters said. The hurricane center also warned of heavy rains for St. Croix and Puerto Rico, which was badly damaged by Hurricane Maria past year and is still recovering from the storm. The potentially unsafe conditions are expected to last through Monday.
