My phone has gotten 3 severe flood warnings for the area. If I look at a severe flood warning map, the whole county is basically dark red.
Considering my county was ground zero for massive fires for the past two years, it's not great atm.
Thunder is booming outside, haven't seen actual lighting and thunder storms happen so often like this since I was a kid up in Monterrey.
I live in the Northeast and every time a heavy rainstorm happens my phone goes off with an emergency alert warning off a "flood warning" and it's usually just a heavy downpour that lasts 30 minutes and doesn't amount to nothing.
Edit: as far as future water conservation goes, I just tried oat milk recently, which tastes pretty great (I tried the unsweetened Quaker Oats kind) and requires 5-6 times less water to produce than almond milk. I highly recommend it.
