That’s why we want to assure you that we are taking proactive steps to ensure that your online presence remains intact, even as Hurricane Hilary approaches Southern California.
The Storm’s Severity
Hurricane Hilary has been making headlines as it gears up to be one of the wettest tropical cyclones in the history of the state. With the issuance of the first-ever Tropical Storm Watch for California, it’s clear that this storm demands our attention. Currently classified as a powerful Category 4 storm, Hurricane Hilary is predicted to track into Southern California over the upcoming weekend and into the early part of next week. This could bring about moderate to heavy showers, thunderstorms, and possibly stronger winds to the region. Some areas in Southern California are even expected to receive a year’s worth of rain due to this storm’s intensity.
