A Boat is Found Spinning off California Coast Which Left 1 Dead and 1 Missing

California CoastCALIFORNIA (state) — One person was found dead and another is missing after a boat was discovered spinning in circles off the California coast Sunday, officials said.

The 17-foot boat was found around 1 p.m. adrift about 8 miles south of Pillar Point Harbor in Half Moon Bay.

A Coast Guard cutter is now searching for Tuan “Tom” Tran, who is predicted to have been operating the vehicle. Harbor personnel found one boater unresponsive earlier in the day near the adrift vessel, which was reported to have two people aboard, including Tran.

When officials originally found the fishing boat, it was spinning in circles out of control.

“Once you lose control of the helm, boats are designed to circle,” said Sgt. John Gonzales with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Department. “It’s a steering mechanism. It kind of pulls forward. It pulls to the right or left and it will stay in that circle.”

Officials let the boat run out of fuel before they were able to safely approach it. Officials then towed it to a nearby harbor as part of the investigation.

Gonzales said boat incident appeared to be an accident, but authorities wanted to check to make sure “everything is fine.”

The Deputy Harbormaster believes neither of the two people on the boat was wearing a life jacket.

“I’m not sure if they would have survived in this situation,” said Cary Smith. “But certainly, they would have had their heads above water or long enough for somebody to have seen them.”

Coast Guard officials searched for Tran into Sunday night and planned to continue the investigations into Monday.

San Jose Flooding Calls For Mandatory Evacuation For 14,000 People…. Still Not Safe To Come Back

With the heavy rains coming to a halt, residents of San Jose are still not allowed to go back into their homes. 14,000 people faced mandatory evacuation this week and about tens of thousands of more faced voluntary evacuation notices.

Residents reported sleeping in their cars and losing all their personal belongings, such as, clothes, photos, and shoes.

There are still no injuries reported as the water reached up to a several feet on some residential streets. Crews in boats spread out and rescued over 400 people. One firefighter was injured while rescuing some pets.

Anderson Dam, which is located southeast of San Jose, is at 103% capacity at the moment. The water level is 2.2 ft over the top of the spillway.

Coyote Creek has also become a means of investigation. It is a hue question for city officials as to why the creek had difficulty handling more water. The water level of the creek hit a historic high on Tuesday with 13.6 feet. Anything above 10 ft is considered a flooding hazard.

Residents were not only urged mandatory evacuate, they were warned to stir clear of the water. It is believed that the water is contaminated with fuel, oil, and sewage. The drinking water is deemed safe.

Officials will handle future storm events much more differently in the future. As for now, they need to focus on helping those in need before thinking about the changed that need to be made in disaster plans.

42 % of California is No Longer In Drought!

Good news for Californians, after one of the worst national disasters in state history. Half of California, including the bay area, is no longer in drought. This occurrence has not happened in the last 4 years.

Looking back a year ago on this same week, only a small 3 percent of California was not in a drought. This year, 42 percent of California is not in drought, all thanks to the endless amount of rain this winter.

From the Santa Cruz Mountains to the Oregon border, which is nearly all of Northern California, has now returned to normal water conditions. Although, important areas of the state such as Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties and San Joaquin Valley from Merced to Bakersfield are still classified as areas in extreme drought. This is due to the fact that these areas received far less rainfall than Northern California. These locations are still having difficulties regarding depleted reservoirs and significantly low water levels.

There are 6 levels of drought intensity, no drought, abnormally dry, moderate drought severe drought, and extreme drought being the worst. Over 28 percent of California is now in extreme drought which is significantly better than last year since it went down from 69 percent.

In 2011, the California drought started to take its toll. During the last 5 years, California has seen the driest period since it came about in 1850. Aside from dried up wells and falling reservoir levels, these conditions became a reason for the death of an estimated 102 million trees in Sierra Nevada.

The last week, California suffered with one of its strongest and wettest storms in the last 6 years. Northern California has received 15 to 25 percent of its annual average rainfall in the last 7 days.

California has improved greatly since 2011, we are hoping it continues to improve.
