As if the first round of rains weren’t enough, another storm is on the way to Southern California. Normally this wouldn’t be bad news, as Socal seems to be in a perpetual state of drought. But the water from the first series of storm systems has not had a chance to receed.
As of this morning, the water level behind Prado Dam was 494 feet. The end of the runway at Corona is 513 feet, so even the slightest bit of rain could re-flood the airport. The City of Corona said that if it happens, they will close the airport the moment the water touches the runway.
